I’m back on the scene with my Sunday Shout-out feature, and this month I’d like to share with you some of my favorite bloggers from the island of Sicily. This summer I shouted about Karen at Lost in Sicilia, which is one of the many blogs from Sicily I enjoy following regularly. I’ll kick off this month’s theme by shining the spotlight on the most recent Sicily blogger I’ve discovered. Last month, ItalyTutto introduced me to the new photoblog Sicilia Through Images, where the talented American photographer Heather Jacks shares her photographs of her new home – Sicily.


Self portrait


Heather lives in the Catania region and her photos introduce us to the beauty of Sicily one shot at a time. I could get lost in her photographs – the sense of calm, the richness of texture and the depth. I enjoy seeing Sicily through Heather’s eyes, and I look forward to her regular posts on Sicilia Through Images. Be sure also to visit Heather’s photography website to see more of her work. Before you get lost in the wonderful shots that Heather shared with me for this Sunday Shout-out, head over to the great blog Casa Dolcetto: Italian Insights where Adrian has selected Heather as this month’s guest photographer and where you can read a great interview. (This week you get two shout-outs!)


Now, sit back, relax and dream of Sicilia…
