    Sometimes lunch is not the answer; getting up late, you look west and think it's about time. Maybe it's not going to rain.

    So there we are, looking at the most envied balcony.

    A look at the market, and a beautiful nikon F with 105/2,5 - very expensive,I'll skip it.

    The square is full, almost.

    So we just step into the flow of people towards the Anphiteatre square (it's not square, you know)

    And then, some steps more and we reach the square. A good use of space, no lions left, and light.

    Then, while she jumps in and out of shops, back towards home.

    A great set of images again, Alf. I have to ask though about the "old building" filter on your Olympus. I don't think any of the Australian-spec Olympus models shipped with it because every building I take a picture of just comes out looking modern.

    Are you sure? You have to enable it deep in the menu, after changing language to Latin.:wink:
    Maybe I should do a series on modernism. But around here most modernist buildings are quite old...
