The Black and White and Color Bar

Guitarist and Dog

I was out and about at Café Bistrot, an arty bar a stone’s throw from my home in Milan, last night.  Aside from being a friendly place, this bar is also rather photogenic and live music can often be heard there.  Owner Carlotta is a down to earth lass and her presence undoubtedly adds to the relaxed atmosphere of this Milan venue.

Here are a few of photos of Carlotta’s joint in which a group of local musicians whiled away an evening jamming, while I photographed them strumming their stuff.  They were very good too.

Here’s one of the guitarists with Carlotta’s dog:

The second photo has been blessed, or, depending on your point of view, blighted, by noise – the bane of the digital photographer – except this photo was shot in low light with an ISO of 2,500 and I quite like the effect.

Stop reading, start speaking

Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.

Here’s another guitarist:

Betty Boop can be found here too:

It’s pretty good having cool places virtually on your doorstep.
