Simply put,

I love carrying around a camera, and trying to get people to look into the lens.

Caccamo, Sicily

Caccamo is small town with a way-off-the-beaten-path feel.  In fact, I don’t think there are any traditional hotels or BnBs in town.  There are only a hand full of restaurants, and it seems like they are hardly ever open.  I was drawn to Caccamo because of the picturesque church and castle that sit above the town.  It is rarely photographed because of the low number of travelers who come through this part of Sicily.  I was able to photograph both sunrise and sunset.  On both occasions, it was overcast and the light was flat.  Finally, after much waiting, there was a break in the clouds and I got the sunrise shot below.

I was able to find a homestay type of place here, though it did take some convincing of the owner.  _DSC0941 _DSC0979“In Sicily where food is love and the street is a stage.  Street food is more than a cheap meal, it’s Communion.”

Kathy Libonati - Patrick, My family of 9 is about to go to Sicily. We are trying to identify our roots. We have learned my great grandparents were born and married in Caccamo. I am curious to know if you came across cemeteries as I would like to visit my great grandmother's grave. I am told she was shot and died around 1890, and my great grandfather fled with his two children, my grandmother and great uncle. How far is the town of Caccamo from the Palermo airport?June 22, 2017 - 7:43 am
