Road trip! road trip! around the Mediterranean island of Sicily – the old country otherwise known as.

From Catania in the far east and ending up in Erice in the north west part of such a wild, wild life of an island.

Here are a selection of black and white images taken with my Fujifilm XT-2 from the journey.

Erice

A beautiful little hamlet only reachable by winding roads like the twirls on one of though chocolate walnut whips I had as a child.

The tiny town features such cobble stone streets and narrow alleyways often converging into each others. Quite a nice way to get lost in the early morning with a camera all by yourself.

One of the things with narrow streets is how the light gets angled in. This of course leaving areas marked out in shadow and other part left to the morning light. How can one complain to this opportunity of photography – certainly not me.

Modica

Yet another Sicilian wonderment. A brief stop for lunch and to experience their world famous chocolate.

Catania

This was certainly the most hectic place what we had endured on the entire road trip. Surrounded by cars in every direction all going somewhere albeit rather slowly.

There was some kind of mental telekinesis between each driver when it came to junctions and how should one go first. Nonetheless I had obviously unbeknown to myself had tapped into this silent communication. In another words I had not yet crashed or had single incident while chaos of evening downtime Catanian traffic increased.

Once we got our feet on the ground a visit to fish market was a must.
