Social Distancing and Clear Blue Skies

The long awaited freedom to roam is approaching. Although the official day to let us out—like a herd of horses waiting for the corral to be opened—will be May 4th, the streets are busy. Many on foot, always in couples. There is a lot of walking, jogging, and power walking. It is quite nice to […]

Lazy Days of Summer

Photographing summer between heatwaves and terrifying thunderstorms, they are typical of northern Italy, but that doesn’t mean that I am used to them. 😳 Sometimes they are accompanied by hail and strong winds.
