Castello Brown and Portofino Harbour

Castello Brown and Portofino Harbour

secret grafic

Yesterday I talked about Castello Brown and today's shot features it. There, on that unbelievably lush hillside, overlooking the harbour and keeping guard for seven hundred years is the castle itself. We didn't spend much time in Portofino and we didn't get a chance to go up there and I really wish I had. I've seen pictures from up there and the view over the bay is amazing. I'd also have loved to check out some of the history it contains. Apparently, there is some evidence of a Roman camp and perhaps a watchtower nearby. Portofino or Portus Delphini (Port of the Dolphin) to use it's Roman name, has been around a long time.

UPDATE: HA! I've somehow broken the feature described below and I'm not sure what I did. I'm trying to fix it. Will update when it's all ok.

UPDATE II: It's only broken on webkit browsers now. Totally at a loss how to fix it.

**UPDATE III: Fixed it. Holy crap, what an ordeal.

There are times when I'm working on photos and I can't decide whether or not I like the colour version or the black and white version - or something completely different. So, for such occasions, I've brought back a feature that I had on here a while ago, didn't really use and then got rid of. In the top right near the RSS link Just under the image title is a little red icon that, if you hover your mouse over, will give you the an alternate version of the photo. It will allow me to show both versions without having to put out an extra post that really is just the same image.

I'd really like to hear your opinions on the matter as that might show me what you guys like. Want more black and white? Let me know. Think I should stick to colour? Let me know.

This won't work at all with RSS so, if you're interested in seeing the alternate, you'll have to click through to the site and check it out there. If this all goes horribly wrong in your browser, drop me a line and I'll see if I can fix it. That said, I'm not busting my hump for Internet Explorer. Please for the love of everything pixelated, get a real browser. Firefox works. Safari is swell. Live on the edge with Chrome. But IE is dead and just doesn't know it yet.
