These are the last of the photos from the point and shoot trouble camera. Sometimes the screen would die and you would have to guess what you were taking a photo of. It was exciting but not as exciting as getting a camera from a friend in the mail that she doesn't need anymore. Tomorrow my Spring Break will begin and I will be trying out the new camera.
These are all from walking around town. The first is of Corso Como 10, a very fancy design shop started by a former editor of Vogue. I can't even afford a real photo of it. The courtyard is amazing. I would love to have a drink there one night. Their bookshop was on a website of the 20 most beautiful bookstores in the world.
Alicia and I were walking down town the other day, a little lost, and found this tower, built in the fifties. It gets wider at the top, not because of awesome design, but because they needed more space. I like it because I can't believe the sides hold up the top, it seems way too heavy. Though Milan is not prone to earthquakes, I will not stand under it.
I was on the outskirts of town and saw this which reminded me of home...banana trees growing inside an abandoned roofless storefront. Milan is gritty and dirty and I have seen some fallen apart buildings but here they seem to have been falling apart since 1945, so I am never sure. But this one was straight up neglect. Or public art.
