quadro #22 4floor: views from my balcony



I was looking for an option to break out from the series scheme I used in the last months. I confess to have a somewhat monotonic ongoing in everything, a thing that I admire in Atget. But serialization is causing me some delay in publishing pictures from other themes that I find worth communicating.

Mauro, I would not want to meet up with this monster. How old was the building being demolished? How long to take it down?

The building was a cheap one (light industry as in SIM City). Was built at the end of the fifties (the area where I live was flattened down by the bombing in WWII). It took a week.

I have many memories of staring - for hours - at many views from your balcony. All those years ago ... old women sweeping pigeon shit, washing that never dried, mist which rolled in and never seemed to leave. Terra-cotta, pink, yellow. For some reason I think more of the views from your balcony than many other things of my time in Milan ...
