If you take a wander down to the seafront late on a warm afternoon you will find people strolling or just sitting and chatting. This is the Sicilian 'passeggiata' or the art of strolling and socialising.
This is one of my favourite times for observing and finding inspiration. This group of pensioners caught my eye because of the way they were squashed onto a bench. There is never enough seating for everybody and if you want to be comfortable while you eat your ice cream you have to wait for your turn. The snazzy white shoes clinched it for me though!
