    But it was not to be, as family pressed upon her the need to be present at serious occasions and not wandering, camera in hand, in the company of very married strangers, ie. yours truly. So we renegotiated for dinner and the show, and I found myself free to roam the streets for the afternoon, which I promptly did.

    Into town, but out the walls, I went around looking for the strong points.

    One

    And finally entered from a place were a hole was.

    Saturday afternoon was calm, light was good, and the sky big. All hail the 45mm Olympus.

    And I went looking for corners. With a thousand people in the same little square, empty.

    She was even more alone, maybe beacuse of her dress.

    Not forgetting her? di alfrjw, su Flickr

    Outside, more activity. Twice.

    Then, Late Late Little Dinner (and beer, that is) with the duo we all know.

    She can listen to the most improbable story with the same face. I don't envy criminals when they have to state just the facts.

    Fast, hit the street. The theatre is just over there.

    And here is Aldo in a classic 30s vernacular comedy, his audience knowing each line.

    So we sit up on the far end, look, chat and I'm told to be serious, once, and please be official. Here you are!

    The roof. It made sense then.

    Then I enjoyed the lights, and in a pause I made use of them with my dearest a willing accomplice.

    Then, the classic "you know, I'm also tall"

    And this is the usual look. I think I like this a lot.

    You know, I'm lucky. I think it's going to come out well.

    Portrait #2 of milady (Technically serious #2) is wonderful, one of the best.
    somehow reminds me of a very low light black & white one you did of her a long time ago ... in the kitchen?
