"Preferiva lasciare intatto l’odore del mare, lo custodiva intero nella memoria e lo godeva indiviso. L’odore del mare gli piaceva tanto che avrebbe desiderato una volta averlo puro, non mescolato e in quantità tale da potersene ubriacare. E in seguito, quando apprese dai racconti com’era grande il mare e come si poteva percorrerlo con navi per giorni interi senza vedere terra, nulla gli fu più gradito che immaginare di trovarsi su una di quelle navi, e di volare attraverso l’odore senza fine del mare, che in realtà non era più un odore, ma un respiro, un espirare, la fine di tutti gli odori, e gli pareva di dissolversi, in questo respiro, dal piacere." 
Patrick Süskind - Il Profumo

"He preferred to leave intact the smell of the sea, he kept it in her memory and enjoyed it undivided. He loved so much the smell of the sea that he wanted it pure, unmixed and in such quantity as he can drink it. And later, when he learned from the stories how great the sea is and how you could scour it with ships for days without seeing land, he was nothing more pleasing than to imagine that he was on one of those ships, and fly through the endless smell of the sea, which in reality was no longer a smell, but a breath, exhale, the end of all odors, and he seemed to dissolve himself, in this breath, with pleasure."

Patrick Süskind - The Perfume

Queste foto sono scattate presso la spiaggia "La Speranza"  situata a 8 chilometri a sud di Alghero lungo la strada che conduce a Bosa. Questa zona è molto bella sia per la fitta macchia mediterranea che la circonda che per il colore cristallino del mare.

These photos are taken at the beach of "La Speranza" (in English "The hope") located 8 kilometers south of Alghero on the road to Bosa. This area is very beautiful for the thick Mediterranean vegetation that surrounds it and for the crystal clear sea.

Buona domenica_ricordando l'odore del mare in estate!

  5. You said it first...crystal clear. STOP TAKING PHOTOS OF BEAUTIFUL PLACES I WANT TO LIVE. :) :) Anyway, I'll say this: I traveled to Australia several years ago, flying from L.A. to Sydney. When I got off the airplane, the first thing I could smell was the harbor. I know it sounds insane, given that I was in an airport in the city...but it was there. The smell of the harbor, the salty sea air, was there. Sometimes, if I think about it really hard, I remember the smell. I remember it and want and ache to go back.

    However, and more importantly, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! May you have a wonderful, wonderful day.
