We had visited this interesting store the day before but I returned to get some photos. This gentleman provided the perfect accompaniment to my photo as I snapped away.

We spent our first day in Denver walking about downtown enjoying the scenery and the historical sites. We passed this — the Voorhies Memorial — as we walked towards the Colorado State House.

Old and new in Downtown Denver. We found out on a historical house tour that much of downtown was bulldozed so there are just a few historical remnants scattered about. That is Trinity Methodist Church in the distance. One of the survivors.

I highly recommend you visit when you are in Milan. This was an amazing respite from the city but still within the city. Bring bug spray as the mosquitos were fierce but the views were gorgeous.

@gogojosephw and I stopped by Little Tokyo to pick up some of our favorite groceries the other day in the way home from Cal Poly Pomona. 
I turned around and saw this scene and automatically took a picture. There was something about being someplace unique and different while also seeing a plane take folks new and different places that made me stop and think for a moment. This is one of those photos that you have to grab quickly or the moment is gone.

On The Street, Via Dante, Milano, Italia via Instagram

I have never been one to practice street photography much, probably because I’m too self-conscious about it and worry about bad reactions from people. 

That said, one afternoon we pulled up at a kiosk to rest our feet and have a snack while we waited to meet family for dinner. 
Via Dante is a large, wide, now pedestrian-only Avenue in central Milan, right near a major subway station. It is a main location for the evening passeggiata or evening stroll so familiar in Italian towns of all sizes. 

This location allowed me to casually sit and capture people as they strolled by without attracting too much attention to myself, so I felt comfortable enough to try out some spontaneous street photography. 

What’s interesting is that these photos bring back some of the fondest memories as they make me feel I am there again more than any photos of dusty history or buildings.

Does your city need more art? How Would you do it?

Sculpture, NATO Headquarters, Milano, Italy

This sculpture is interesting as it uses an old-world style to depict modern events. Its companion on the other side of the door shows Swords, cannons, and banners while this one depicts grenades, ammo belts, and machine guns.
