An afternoon in Italy in late September. All one could want from life, really. I met my visitors in Orvieto, Umbria, and then we went to Bolsena by the lake (in Lazio), the town where I haven’t strolled yet. It was a great place for … Continue reading Lens-Artists: Look up to beauty
I’m not sure who invented the word doorfie for a selfie in a door reflection, but today I’ve got an even newer word: Normie. That is, Norm in a door-shell. He has survived the attack of Tuscan doors and greets you all. There were some … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 4/10/18: Normies in Maremma
