November Sunset

November is my favorite month for sunsets in Molfetta. They are extremely vibrant and colorful. This is the very tail end of one...I was racing against time to get home and up on my roof to take the photo.

This is going to have to be my last regular post for the next month or so. I have just received a big and important translating job (a whole book!) and will have to work non-stop as fast as I can until it's done. That will leave me little time for blogging.

I will try to post occasional photos when possible, but I must admit that I have also been very frustrated over the past month with camera problems. My little point and shoot Kodak (which drove me nuts, but basically got the job done) died a sudden death a while ago and the quality of the photos I'm able to get with my other camera options is pretty pitiful! I'm hoping Santa Claus will keep in mind what good girl I've been this year! ;-)

Saretta, it's a beautiful shot of a magnificent sunset! I'm so glad for us that you got to your roof in time!

Good luck with the translating job! I hope you'll be back with us before Christmas. I'll also pray that Santa gives you his Christmas gift early. :D

Beautiful sunset!

I love chestnuts! We also celebrate Saint Martin (São Martinho) on the 11th November and eating chestnuts is part of the tradition. I specially like them boiled with anis seed.

Will miss your daily photo - but Hurrah! for a book job. Hope it's an interesting book. And I really hope Baba Natale has his ears open...

It is amazing. I hope a camera comes your way soon. Really enjoyed your images. Beautiful area, lovely narrative. Good look on the translation, a daunting task.

Good luck with your translating work! I admire such a skill....and still look forward to seeing your photos when possible :).

Saretta said...

Thanks for all your encouragement and support. The book is VERY interesting, so that's a help!

I hope to keep the blog going minimally by scheduling posts in advance and cutting way back on visiting around to other blogs. Check in when you have time!

Santa for sure will remember how good girl you've been this year and also how good you are of taking photos ;-)

If Santa happens to forget perhaps you can direct a bit of the book translation earnings toward a shiny new camera :)

Buon divertimento a tradurre.
