    Saturday morning, some serious clouds came out, and a little wind. So, before meeting my dearest in town, I decided to take a look at a place I often see from afar.

    Here it is: stop, turn right, park - enjoy a few minutes before the rain.
    The road is straight westwards, and this is the south side. Two takes with E-PL1 and 14-42mkI

    End of the road, usual sign : "very private, nothing allowed, go away, you stink, very much not welcome if not a customer". Everywhere in Tuscany you read this kind of signs. So when a human approaches with a hunting carabine I do my "lost tourist" performance, loved by armed thugs everywhere in the world, and move to the tree, pretending to piss while mounting the Lumix 20/1,7.

    I receive definite instructions on my way back, and put on my hat while it starts to rain.

    That's all for Saturday, and I think I'll spend this afternoon enjoying the sun. At home. :)
