4119 – The Triangles of Montegrisa III

F8, 1/15s, ISO 200, thr range as dynamic as it gets and … this camera is good enough. If there had been a basketball game going on under these conditions, I’d very likely sing a different tune, but as it is – and as what I take pictures of – the OM-D E-M1 Mk II is a perfect camera.

What if I’d frequently went to basketball games? Well, I’d buy a second camera with one long zoom. Nothing else.

4116 – Santuario di Montegrisa

The Santuario di Montegrisa is not a small church.

It’s architecture is brutally modern, all composed of triangles and naked concrete, and in a way that contrasts interestingly with the paintings, photographs and in general that the place is busy with people, using it as a temple of worship.

It just doesn’t look like that. Take out all the altars, put it in space and call it a warship of the Imperial Fleet. Darth Vader wouldn’t look out of place here πŸ™‚

Ugly? Beautiful? Yes, both, in a way. It’s interesting in any case, and I love how this is not mainstream modern architecture.

4114 – E.R.DI.S.U. 61

When I took the image, I just found that extremely long abbreviation funny. I had no idea what it means.

Well, Google is really good at that. Of course they have it indexed and it means “Ente Regionale per il diritto e le opportunitΓ  allo studio universitario”, which Google translates as “Regional body for law and opportunities for university study”.

Hmm … now I do have an idea. Nice door, by the way πŸ™‚
