Walking through the old town of Bergamo you pass so many twisting side streets and cobblestones that they begin to almost all look the same. But in amongst them life goes on, and in this picture an old lady is returning home, passing a small group of tourists of which there are many here, especially around the main piazza. The ‘No Entry’ sign stands out, bright red, against the muted yellow stone of the buildings around.
I was only here in Bergamo for a couple of hours before my midday flight. I’d like to return and take this picture again, but this time at night. I think the street lamps would add loads of atmosphere and maybe the trails of passing traffic, though there isn’t so much of that in this particular street.
