While it is always fun to travel around Italy snapping shots and capturing the bel paese in all of her thousands-year-old glory, sometimes it is fun to take a look at what others are doing. Over the next few months, I’ll be showcasing some of my favorite photos of Italy’s southern regions taken by fellow Italophiles and posted (under creative commons, of course) on Flickr.

Let’s kick our Southern Italy Snapshots series off today with my home region … bella Calabria, with one beautiful photo representing each of Calabria’s five provinces, Catanzaro, Cosenza, Reggio Calabria, Crotone and Vibo Valentia.

  3. If that’s not possible, you can take a section of
    your hair and wrap it around the band to hide it and tuck it under to
    hold the hair in place. It will also search extraordinary on hair which is thick with wealthy hues and highlights all over the
    strands. However, discuss with your stylist before getting
    anything done.
