A Close Shave – Scooting About Milan

Whilst on the way the Gaetano’s house on the back of Gaetano’s trusty scooter to take some photos for a little real estate experiment I’m cooking up, a twerp decided, at the last minute, that he needed petrol and pulled right across us. Gaetano pulled up rather sharply and we both ended up resting against […]

Who says Technology is Anti-Social?

Admittedly being stuck in front of a screen typing away would not appear to be a particularly social thing to do, but, as a result of tapping away, I’ve got to meet, both virtually, and in reality, some great people.

Experimental Night Photos

If you would like to have a look at some of the shots I took last night, then please pop on over to my Flickr collection. Just click here: Milan by Night I don’t mind if anyone borrows these photos, if they think they are worth borrowing, that is, but I would appreciate some credit. […]
