In the garden… Scene from the Orto Botanico in the Brera District of Milan

A couple finds respite in the cool shade of the garden on a hot Summer day. We did the same. After walking through the garden we found a bench and just enjoyed the scenery. The mosquitos got to be a bit fierce, though. Bring bug spray if you visit in summer. 😀

Another photo of architecture taken to its abstract limits. This isn’t someplace special or unique in regards to architecture but was found in a local shopping mall. 

For myself, I was taken by the regular divisions of space in contrast to the larger panels and the curvature of the roof and how it effects the divisions.

I ended up taking lots of photos of storefronts during this trip. There are so many interesting and unique displays and often the stores themselves are just as unique.

In this scene we get an important lesson on how sight lines can make a garden seem much larger than it is. The leading lines of the pathway, the encroaching growth of the plants and the architecture at the end make it seem like the garden goes on for an even greater distance. 
This garden is hemmed in By buildings on each side and isn’t particularly large, but new vistas were always opening up as you walked about.

What is your favorite architecture?

Architectural Abstract, Packing House, Claremont, California

The sunset created this amazing abstract light painting on the @claremontpacking building on Friday night while we had dinner at @eurekaclaremont . 
My eye is often caught by these interesting patterns. So much so that @drrosannewelch will often ask just WHAT I am taking a picture of. 😀

What is your favorite beer, wine or beverage?

Porter at Eureka, Claremont, California

Since we had to drive to Cal Poly for an awards presentation for @drrosannewelch and an eSports event for @gogojosephw, we took some time out for a stroll and dinner in Downtown Claremont. There we had drinks and dinner at @eurekaclaremont. We ended the evening at a poetry and music show at @sanctuarycoffee, a non-profit coffeehouse that donates all profits to public assistant organizations.

On The Street, Via Dante, Milano, Italia

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.
