Doorways of Milano

Who lives here? What do they do? Where does this doorway lead?

I found myself asking these questions every time we passed an entry like this. I collected many such pictures on our trip to Milan last September and have often done the same on past trips to Italy. They are always so fascinating especially when they give such tantalizing views of what lies beyond.

Milano, Italia

We were walking through Parco Sempione on our way to dinner and caught the Arch of Piece in the late afternoon light. This is the front of the monument, facing away from the sunset, but it takes on a unique character in black and white. The details stand out quite nicely.

A tree returns to the garden soil

In the Orto Botanico In the Brera District of Milan, a tree is felled but left in place to benefit wildlife, fungi and the surrounding soil. It is also a great educational tool for explaining the soil cycle and other garden concepts. Even as it decomposes, it lends a beautiful, architectural element to the garden, too. This is definitely an argument for leaving downed trees and snags in your own garden, when possible. 

In a similar fashion, I use wood chips to line the paths in my garden—an method I started after seeing the same at nearby @descansogardens. It is a great way to make use of what otherwise might go into your garden bins or, perhaps, the composter.

We were walking through Parco Sempione on our way to dinner and caught the Arch of Piece in the late afternoon light. This is actually the back side of the arch. I would have had to be there in the morning to get light on the front . That said, I think I have photos of that illuminated later in the evening.

Another angle of this castle as we walked around it on our way to dinner with family. 

The late afternoon sun makes it bricks glow and highlights all the crenelations, mortar joints and scaffold holes in its exterior. 

Working to see architecture from many different angles can lead to some amazing photos. Sure, take the same pics that all the other tourists are taking, but then dig deeper, move around and find something that speaks directly to you.

My week in a nutshell via instagram

My week in a nutshell via instagram

My week in a nutshell

Spent the latter half of last week, and most of this week, on jury duty and fighting a horrible cold.

The trial wasn’t bad by the cold left me exhausted, especially after commuting downtown on the bus and train — in the rain. 
Still not 100% recovered, but resting and sleeping a lot and trying to do a few small things in-between. Hopefully back online fully next week. 

Forward into the weekend! 🤗
