I love the spring light on the Amalfi Coast. Or maybe it’s just that I see things during the month of February, when the town of Amalfi has taken a deep breath and closed its shutters and shops for a bit of winter rest, that are easily missed during the busier times of the year. Last week I was waiting on the steps of the cathedral in a sunny spot in Piazza Duomo while my boyfriend was in the bank. I turned around and spotted this pretty ceramic tile showing the facade and campanile of the church near the Pizzeria Sant’ Andrea, which is located right at the base of the steps of the Duomo. I hadn’t ever noticed it before, perhaps because it is mostly covered with the restaurant awning or I was distracted by the busy outdoor tables. I love moments like this where I feel like I get to know the city I love just a little better. Like the quirks or habits of your best friend or loved one. It takes slowing down to savour these little things, and February on the Amalfi Coast is perfect for doing just that!

  • Pretty shot!

  • What a lovely little discovery. 🙂 I like moments like this too. The ones where you’re looking around and all of a sudden you can’t help but smile at what you spotted. 🙂

    Relationships are like that as well towns! Sometimes when things slow down you see some of the details that are missed when rushing forward. I like the 4 seasons for that reason and thanks again for a great Friday photo!
