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]

All in One Morning [11|365]

At first I thought I’d keep it simple today and just post this photo of the pure blue sky and the warm colors of Bologna architecture. It’s like a geometric abstract, in a way. I think it will be my new desktop image. But then I saw this fancy Ape and couldn’t resist. I’m used to the Ape 50 van, which I often see on … Continue reading All in One Morning [11|365]

At … Continue reading 4 gennaio 2019

2 gennaio 2019

I may be an atheist, but there’s something about the freedom of the lines of this quick sketch and the emotion conveyed that really spoke to me, whether the cross is a part of it or separate. This one I call, … Continue reading 2 gennaio 2019

For the Love of Rustication

Just a few words on this Wednesday … I need to save the rest for my paying job. My love of rustication is long standing and still intense and I get a bit of a thrill when I see some good stuff. As I probably mentioned before, I’ve been known to give it a bit of a fondle in passing. So when I saw this … Continue reading For the Love of Rustication
