Signs to anywhere

What is important is to follow them anyhow. You'll get somewhere sooner or later. It's the Robert Frost approach of "The road not taken".

The Gosts' Corner

There's a corner in the old coaches of Milan underground from where, depending on the light conditions and railway bent you can see the people sitting in front of you reflected on the back windows facing the next coach and appear as if they were sitting in there. It's the corner where people appear and fade away in a matter of seconds. I've been noticing this curious conditions since I arrived here in year 2000. Yesterday the train stopped for a while between two stations, where the rail inclination and curvature were good enough to see a steady picture.
I've been taught that optics laws respect a principle of reciprocity. That's why I thought that if one of these two "ghosts" rose their head and looked through the windows they would have seen another ghost pointing at them his mobile and take a picture.

A Different Perspective

You need to get close to the window and reveal yourself, if you want to see the world from a different perspective.

Note: these involuntary prisoners were all released soon after their photo session.

Late Blossom

Looks like these Succulentae waited for the end of the Summer before pushing their best sprouts out. And it seems to me that the same happens in all contexts, even between humans. If they only became aware of it.

Mount Spotting

Soon after taking off from Milan the spectacle of the Alps presents before the passengers. As an amateur photographer I take care to choose my seat in the best possible position to let me look outside and take some pictures. On a clear sky day the best possible activity you can do is pressing your forehead on the window glass and play a "spot the mountain" game. It's better than any page of geographical atlas.

The one on the bottom, below, is the Sassolungo group (Saslonch in Ladin dialect), close to Val Gardena, in the Italian South Tyrol.

As anticipated, last Tuesday has been a good and very long day. It started with a dramatic sky in Italy and ended with a sunny sunset in Austria. Even though I had been flying and driving for the whole day, a short walk around the hotel was necessary before I met with some friends for dinner.
