MILAN - the Fashion Capital was hosting 'Fashion Week' when I arrived on the 23rd of September, however my stay was short and only for the night. Fashion shows scheduled everywhere. For me, this was the best 'window shopping' experience in a long time. So here I share some of my 'Fashion Week Models, fresh from the shop windows. The Italian window designs are just as impressive as the 'real thing'.
And here is one from a children's fashion parade that I was lucky enough just to get from the street as it was a 'ticketed event'.
Oh and just as you walk down the street you see all sorts of Fashionable Monuments. I just loved this shoe. Not sure what SIZE it was but I'm sure a pair could be 'made to order'
Celebrated for its art and its architecture, Venice is one of the worlds most beautiful cities. The city is regarded by some as a 'living museum' attracting thousands of tourists every year. For this reason it is more pleasant to visit during 'off peak times'. Mid September onwards, which was the time of my visit it a little less hot and a little less crowded.
Lets travel down some of the canals on an 'Italian Gondola' for some glimpses of this beautiful city.
Ok, on the way back home now (below), ready to start the day or to enjoy your evening.

I love street photography and capturing the context of our everyday life and then, writing the 'stories' that go with the images.
