Flicking through some photos of Italy from May, there seems to be a surreal theme to my favourites. Was really taken by this stone tree in the courtyard of the Medici Palace in Rome and wouldn't mind growing one in our backyard.
Brilliant light and Italianate buildings suggest Giorgio de' Chirico. The only thing missing was the long shadows and the outline of a train.
The roofline of buildings spiralling down the cliffs of Cinque Terre put me in mind of Maurits Escher.
As did the rooftops in Siena.
And this Sienese beauty speaks for herself.
