k is for kiosk


please click on photo to see kiosk up close



yes, we are back in italy again. I needed a kiosk photo for today and I already used the one I had from brooklyn so I had to resort to the archives. this amazing little structure stood in the blazing sun at the piazza dei cavalieri in pisa, italy. isn't it a beautiful kiosk?

today is abc wednesday thanks to mrs. nesbitt, and the letter for the day is K. please go here to join in the fun.

It is indeed lovely but I can´t help thinking that it could be a bit bigger to have more space for all those magazines!:-)

I love kiosks, but they are always small, and the magazines are placed just to fit on/on them! Space-saving!

Very nice shot !

Are the magazines for sale? Has the vendor gone for a siesta?

Adorable! When I first looked at the thumbnail of your photo in my reader, I thought, "Gee, I didn't realise they had places like that on Long Island." :) I'm guessing the kiosk vendor is closed for the lengthy lunch break.

Very nice choice for K, Lily. You're right—we are on the same page (or in the same country, anyway).

Nice shot and great for K....I like the little peek at the street on the side...

Fabulous image for a fabulous word! It just sounds good saying it, doesn't it (or is it just me?)?

Kiosk! KIOSK! KIOSK! Such a fun word to say-- makes my "K" day, thanks!

I loved the kiosks when I lived in Europe and was amazed just how much stuff they could get in them! Great shot and a great K word for the day!

Enjoy!

Yes it is a beautiful little kiosk.

Kind of made me laugh. When I first moved to NJ I worked for a couple of hours a day in a photo kiosk before I decided I'd better find a full time job. I kind of enjoyed it.

Nuts, I had a chance to take a great kiosk picture but didn't think to. Maybe NEXT summer... thanks for the idea.

Nifty kiosk! I'd live in one that was a bit larger, I think!
