Fotoeins Friday: Chores in Corniglia (Cinque Terre)

Visitors flock to Italy’s Ligurian Riviera on foot, by car, and by train. There are elements of romance about the sounds of the sea, the warmth of the Mediterranean sun, and the scent of salt in the on-shore breeze. But people also live here, obviously and for multiple generations.

In the famous Cinque Terre region, Corniglia is a small quiet village sitting on a small rocky headland some 100 meters (330 feet) above sea level. There’s yet another hint to romance, but the daily grind might appear green on the other side of the street. Or for that matter, on the other side of the world. The Cinque Terre has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997.

I made the photo above on 21 June 2008 with the Canon EOS450, 18-55 kit-lens, and the following settings: 1/500 sec, f/4.5, ISO640, 33mm focal length (53mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at as
