    The elite pray here, and it shows: it's out of the flow, nondescript outside, small but looking huge when you're inside, and with lots of beautiful details and bling, bling, bling.

    E-PL1 with 14-42mk1 (and 20/1.7 somewhere)

    Alf, as you know I spotted these yesterday on Flickr. I would love to be able to see this place in real life! I urge people to check the set out on Flickr where you can see them in their full glory or in their full "bling", if you like.:biggrin: You do so well with these interior shots!

    Yes, it's an E-PL1. Though these are LR3 imports (resized and adjusted for wb only), so the jpegs are not OOC.
    But LR3.4 jpegs (updated yesterday) look more like oly OOC jpegs than before, maybe they updated the olympus raw driver to converge withe oly treatment.

    And to enjoy some great chocolate and food, too:

    Right in front of this church that small coffeehouse was the Prime Minister's hangout back in 1861. They have his table, though it's not reserved anymore.
    Just to the left, best Venetian food in Turin. Maybe cheaper than in Venice.
