Arco della Pace at Sunset

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.

Arco della Pace at Sunset, 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 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.

Castello Sforzesco di Milano, Milano, Italia

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! 🤗

My Los Angeles 75 – Los Angeles City Hall and Grand Park via Instagram

My Los Angeles 75 - Los Angeles City Hall and Grand Park via Instagram

My Los Angeles 75 – Los Angeles City Hall and Grand Park

Looking east towards City Hall in Downtown LA with Grand Park in the foreground. 

Taken from the top floor of the Stanley Mosk Courthouse while on jury duty today. I always make a point of taking photos from this rather unique perspective when I am here. 

City Hall has always been a striking building and was once the tallest building in Los Angeles. I have been at the top of the tower once — where the tall pillars are — and also above that on the observation deck just above. It still offers some great views of LA if you ever get the chance.

Tiffany and Company, Beverly Hills, California via Instagram

Tiffany and Company, Beverly Hills, California

An historical name in retail, but not someplace I shop regularly. 

That said, nearly 21 yeas ago, when our son was born, he received a couple of blue Tiffany boxes. These were the first that I had ever seen up close. It was quite a shock. 

One gift was the proverbial “silver spoon” and I must say I never expect my son to be born with a “silver spoon in his mouth.” I always consider us to be a fairly typical midwestern family, but there have been times in our lives when we have skirted the world of money and power.

My Los Angeles 74 – Downtown Los Angeles

A view up Grand Avenue with the Walt Disney Concert Hall and The Broad in the foreground. 

Taken from the top floor of the Stanley Mosk Courthouse while on jury duty today. I always make a point of taking photos from this rather unique perspective when I am here. The Music Center is nearby too but the entire plaza is closed off for new construction. 

I tend to stay in for lunch in order to avoid another trip through security and at least the views are nice. 

Not my favorite way to spend a day or 2, but it is a civic duty we should all do. You would want someone to do the same for you should you ever need it. 

It is also important to see the “real world” of jurisprudence and not only the distorted view that television shows us.
