Near the docks in Naples is a gloomy little carnival with carefully crafted Disney characters that include a Mickey Mouse dispensing gas and Buzz Lightyear propped up in a tea-cup.

Maybe I can be one of those people who shoot photos of lone ships on the horizon.  And I can tell people these photos are metaphors for life.  Man versus nature.  Or nature versus man.  And I can start a little blog called “Fake Mountain”  that is littered with irrelevant and sarcastic photos that only occasionally capture the strange and subtle ways we still manage to connect with nature..  Nah… that would be lame.

Random bulwarks like this appear around Naples.  The city has risen and fallen many times and the people are often forced to build around earlier civilizations.  

We spent the holidays in southern Italy. Here is a crowded alley in the old city of Naples.
