Milano (PartII)

By bliba  
You can easily explore the highlights of Milan on a weekend (ideally an extended one). Arrive on Fridays, eat well and have a few cosy glasses of wine. On Saturday, you'll be under the sign of fashion: after an extensive breakfast, you'll head for the "most expensive street in Europe" - the Via Monte Napoleone - with all the ultra-luxury flagship stores. In addition, the search for hidden outlets is on the agenda. In the evening you will celebrate in the Navigli quarter. On Sundays, you'll be filled with culture waiting for you on every corner. Beautiful architecture, world-class art or exciting museums: it's all there!

Your notes sound like a blurb for a travel brochure, but very tempting! Excellent mono image with your usual sun-flare. The group depicted all look as if hot-footing to the shops to grab a bargain.

A fine street capture from Milan, Ollie, and you make it very appealing for anyone wanting to part with their money to go there! 😁👍

Hushed reverence, worshippers treading the sacred floor. OK it's a shopping mall but it might as well be the cathedral...

Ah Milano, sei squisito!

I knew this was one of yours before I even clicked on it. Your command of light is second to none.

And your description of Milan, spot on!

I think I spent more euros in Milan than any of the other Italian cities put together.

Passa un buon fine settimana.

You have an eye for how to use light to your advantage, Ollie. To quote a James Bond theme, nobody does it better.Wink

Light. And shade. And light again.

An optimistic view of the world.

Great silhouettes in contrast with the light in the background, beautiful interpretation.
