Noto Infiorata 2010

Wow, this past weekend flew by! I  guess that is a side effect of being busy.  I essentially spent the weekend behind the camera; Saturday was the Sig Photo Club  trip to Noto for Infiorata, and Sunday I did a portrait photo shoot.

This was my third trip to Noto for Infiorata.  Each year has been so different!  To see what I mean check out my posts about my first visit, and second visit.  Here are a few photos of this year's incredible flower mosaics:

Just a bit of color and whimsy, slinkys for sale

A reflection

For some reason this shop caught my attention :)

The Duomo

Infiorata has been one of the few Sicilian festivals that I've attended more than one.  I love the color and creativity that goes into creating these beautiful mosaics.  Each year is so different and I've really enjoyed seeing the differences from year to year.
