tagged i

Feel free to add in the comments the link to your personal interpretation of the letter “i”!!! Myself I’ll feature i for Italians:

  2. Hi Frizz! I’ve always wanted to visit Italy – I have a feeling that the laid back, effusive, warm, and romantic vibe would appeal to me greatly. I love this photograph as well. I have a weakness for monochrome photos.

    I’m in today with some dessert love: I is for Ice Kachang and Indonesian Mixed Fruits. Here it is:

  3. When I was younger, I always wished I were Italian. My childhood friend was and her family was so interesting and fun and the meals! MMMM.

  8. This is indeed a beautiful, and very relaxed photograph. Together, the use of monochrome, and the fact that the gentleman is reading the newspaper and not an electronic book, makes the scene a bit nostalgic…
