Month of August, a hot day with some clouds, a free day: the perfect combination to try the Sony/Zeiss 16-35mm zoom. Since I feel the irresistible attraction of long focal lenses, I decided not to allow myself a lense change at all today.
Off to a walking tour of Milan. First stop is Parco Sempione, just a couple of warm-up shots.
The castle is a castle, with walls, iron gates and embrasures
Finally, the main entrance that leads out to the square with the fountain
The EXPO gates, two modern structures constructed for EXPO 2015
The bookstore is at the entrance of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele. Some shots of the beautiful ceiling are in order. But not only.
Final stop of the first part of the walk, via and giardino della Guastalla, modern and old items
Some interesting advertisement just down the road
Finally, the new Portello area. First the apartment buildings, which like those above appear completely empty, more like monuments than dwelling houses.
Then the new A.C. Milan building. It is grey with red and black stripes, but not all over. So if you leave out the red, the reflected sky brings to mind the colors of another team, obviously not an intended effect.
