Motor Yacht on the Mediterranean

Motor Yacht on the Mediterranean

Whilst visiting family in Sardinia, Italy I spotted this luxurious motor yacht speeding through the Mediterranean Sea. I’ve seen dozens of these in various ports and harbours, but it< is rare for me to see one out on the open seas. Being white it tricks the camera into using a very short shutter speed, which causes the sea around to be a little darker than it actually was.

Sardinian Archway

Sardinian Archway

I noticed this archway whilst walking around the narrow streets of Cagliari, the capital of Sardinia. It had to be photographed because it looked as if it might fall down on me there and then! I love the detail and textures in the stonework. It makes me wonder how many years it has been there, and was it originally part of something bigger. What did it look like when it was new?!
