    I was jumping here and there with the Saturday chores after leaving my dearest at her office up to the moment I laid on the sofa, mission accomplished, ready to head for the door to meet the young Fiona and go head hunting, as they say.

    Fiona, not yesterday

    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.

    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.
    Look, yellow light. di alfrjw, su Flickr

    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, on to meet my dearest and a smiling surprise.

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

    Fiona, serious di alfrjw, su Flickr

    Believe me di alfrjw, su Flickr

    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.
    We are late. di alfrjw, su Flickr

    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.
    They built this way, then. di alfrjw, su Flickr

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

    "If you don't smile, they'll let you run for office"

    Then, the classic "you know, I'm also tall"
    Technically serious. di alfrjw, su Flickr

    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.

    All e-pl3, some ooc artfilters, some overworked in lr4, good night and sleep well.
