Frida’s day – street photography session

Frida’s day – street photography session

May 8, 2018

The weekend has been planned by Marta: her choice is hard for me to accept but I don’t have alternatives. Unfortunately she found a couple of internet sites about Houston activities, with particular emphasis on the weekends: this means good-bye to the relaxing sofa and welcome to… Frida’s day in Houston! Of course the focus […]

Saturday: Downtown!

February 18, 2018

Several weeks (months!!) have passed now since we took our last stroll together: time to recover. Overcast weather but warm temperature so we need a coffee to wake up and make better decisions on our itinerary. Galveston would be a nice destination but Marta’s heart beats for Downtown: next week-end will be Rodeo BBQ, 100% […]

Livorno

Livorno

December 26, 2017

During my years in Tuscany I have never really got to know Livorno. Just like another stranger, I passed by and moved through this historical port: quick superficial visits and not enough to capture the city spirit.
