Bologna, Not Verona [16|365]

Not completely sold on the proportions/lines of this photo, but that’s one of the challenges of taking a photo with a dog in one hand next to morning traffic. But I did love the morning sun on the balcony and the light and shadows of the portico arches, not to mention that blue blue sky. Something to try again in the future. And yes, I’ve … Continue reading Bologna, Not Verona [16|365]

1 Gennaio 2019

I’ve done a photo a day project in the past and thought about doing it again. Today was easy, as Charlie and I went for a long walk around town. As it was a bit chilly, I thought he should at least wear a scarf.

What a year. Mainly lousy, but we did get married. That was nice. But yeah, not a lot of blogging. I really am a bit burnt out right now. I manage to post to Instagram, but that’s about it.

This was one that caught my eye on a recent walk around town. You’ve got the warm colors of Bologna, the pointed and curved arches of the portici and … Continue reading Colorful Intersections

The Gilded Portico

Via Farini and the neighboring streets and palazzi are where you head when you want to do some seriously high-end shopping in Bologna. Even if you can’t afford to do more than sniff some of the perfumes or carefully caress some of the clothing, you can always window shop. Best of all, you can feel a bit like royalty without even going inside the stores. … Continue reading The Gilded Portico

Cloister Details of Santa Maria Novella

I have what feels like a million photos of Santa Maria Novella and don’t know what to do with them all. We easily spent at least two hours wandering around inside and out while we were in Florence the other week. There are some photos that deserve their own post, others could be grouped, but I don’t want to overwhelm with too many pictures at … Continue reading Cloister Details of Santa Maria Novella
