Models Posing

Two models were posing against a motorbike in the camera shop 'Grand Marvin'  in via Langrange, normally I am not so fond of taking photo of posing models, but since I was there waiting for Max to purchase something, and since they were there posing, so why not just snap some photo....

Cycling Along The River Po

Along the river Po, at the opposite side of Murazzi, there is a trail which people can run or cycle all the way to the next town, San Mauro and beyond. On a good weather day, it is an entertaining and very satisfying way to explore the river side....

Looking At The Flow

As for me, looking at the people looking at the flow double the pleasure.

Hard Labour

Every Monday should be named 'Hard Labor ' day, since it is so hard to get up from the bed and so unwillingly to get to work......

These two guys are condemned to hard labor forever, until the end of their time.

Dogs Talk - Socializing

Often meet people walking their dogs on the street and often the dogs are willing to get 'socialized' with us, while the owners show more reluctance to get close. Some, not only keep a distance, they forbid their dogs to come near for a sniff, or ask for some caresses by pulling them away in a harsh way......

Wanted Or Not

Saw this on the wall at via Montebello, Wanted: 'Dead Or Alive'....

Ivy, plural ivies (Hedera), is a genus of 12–15 species of evergreen climbing or ground-creeping woody plants in the family Araliaceae, native to western, central and southern Europe, Macaronesia, northwestern Africa and across central-southern Asia east to Japan and Taiwan.

A piece of external wall full of climbing ivy can be spectacular, but everything grow from small, here is a small pot of ivy trying to climb up a metal post in the courtyard of a building.

Palazzo Madama

Palazzo Madama e Casaforte degli Acaja is a palace in Turin, northern Italy. It was the first Senate of the Italian Kingdom, and takes its traditional name from the embellishments it received under two queens (madama) of the House of Savoy.
