2815 – Viaggi e Miraggi IV

Como, the city at the southern end of Lago di Como, has a large cathedral, one of the marvels of early Italian renaissance.

It’s playful style with the many small turrets on the roof somehow reminded me of the famous Certosa di Pavia, and seemingly I am not the only one. At least in my travel guide I found the same reference.

When we arrived (still on the first day), it was just not raining. It did for a few minutes while we were inside, but as soon as we left, the rain was gone again and the sun came out. Quite welcome when you want to sit outside and have a drink 🙂

I didn’t get the perspective completely right on that ceiling shot, but hey, half a second (handheld) at f4 and ISO 640, I tell you it was really, really dark inside 😛

The Song of the Day is and stays “Viaggi e Miraggi” by Francesco De Gregori. Hear it on YouTube.
