Saturday Night Fever

August 8, 2012

There was a whole lot of amore goin’ on in my hot Sicilian village a few Saturday nights ago.

  • Jann, how wonderful that you happened to be at the right time and the right place to capture this magnificent steamy moments! Love is indeed in the air! I love, love the first shot! What a lovely couple. 🙂

  • lucy

    Love them all!!! wish I was there! my sister is in Sicily in Termini Imerese, how far are you from there?

    • Jann

      Lucy, Termini is on the north coast and I am down about as south as you can go in Sicily. Maybe 3 (or 4) hours by car?

  • Great photos with lots of attitude Jann!! Romantic but edgy too. A beautiful post. Jxx

  • Another winner, Jann. Love the third one with the man’s hand on the back of his love. There is something special about the way you find beauty all around.

  • Anitre

    You manage to capture the spirit of the island beautifully. Brava, Jann!

  • catherine billups

    looks like they are dressed for a wedding.

    • Jann

      Yes, Catherine, you’re right. There were a few weddings going on… the best time to catch folks dressed to the nines.

  • These photos are hot hot hot! I’m surprised your camera lens didn’t steam up photographing these beautiful lusty people. I love the man’s hand placed on the bride’s hip–and her shapely hips so beautifully accented in that dress. But my very favourite is the first one, with the red drink (might it be Campari?). Wonderful black and white contrast and then that hot red popping out with passion. That one would not be out of place in a high fashion magazine. Bellissima!

  • Sam

    That first black & white photo with the color drink reminds me of all those times I was stuck in a group of dull people, and the only thing of real interest was the drink in my hand.

  • –The first photo is MY FAVE. Love the smooch on the skin, cigarette dangling, & the cranberry colour
    ( in the midst of black and white) of that lusheous drink.

    ….And the girl is stunning.

    btw, only one thing is missing. “”You and your Lovahhh””” Jann. Xxxxxxxxxxx OOO

  • Absolutely HOT! Grazie for sharing!
    And congratulations to Emalene…looking forward to sending you a book!

  • These are All Beautiful!
    Happy Wednesday!

    • Jann

      Hi Donna–welcome to the blog! Thanks for your comment–and Happy Thursday back to you & hugs…

  • Cathy

    Just beautiful Jann! I love the last one on the motorcycle — very sexy!

    And hey! Your site is featured today on Andi Brown’s Once in a Lifetime Travel blog, she is doing a ’30 Days of Favorite Italian Websites’ series… As she is open to suggestions, on the very first day I just had to tell her about your site and how much I enjoy your blog. I didn’t think you’d mind 🙂

    How are you surviving in the heat there??

    • Jann

      Do I mind???? You’re TOOOO sweet, Cathy!

      The heat in Italy this summer is BARELY survivable–it seems to be even worse in places like Umbria and Rome. All but the most intrepid need to stay inside between the hours of 10am and 6pm. I would advise tourists who don’t like heat to steer clear in July and August!
