Back in Old Roghudi

The ghost town of Roghudi Vecchio (Old Roghudi) is one of my favorite places. Nevertheless, it’s been several years since my last visit. Located in a deep gorge of the Aspromonte massif, the road to get there is awful, too bad for my small city car.

Reggio Calabria Cathedral


I was photographing the Cathedral of Reggio Calabria lit up at night. A lady stopped in front of me making a series of mobile photos. How irritating! However, I continued to photograph with the lady in the foreground. Well, in the end it was the best photo of that evening. Many thanks to the unknown lady.
