Sorry If I have been very absent for a while. Work has kept my head down as we try to get our economy restarted here in Italy. I have been working long hours, and seven day weeks as my small Engineering studio tries to keep all my clients happy. I have just had a few breaks to do some photography.

I did have an afternoon in Bologna on the back of a site visit. Just after I took this set UNESCO made Bologna's arcades a World Heritage site.

The Arcade that stretches up to San Luca is several kilometres long.

Excellent as usual, Nigel. I really enjoyed those.

I spent four summers in the 1980s as a visiting professor at the University of Bologna. I regret that I never visited San Luca, though my wife and children did.

My first summer there was lots of rain and I really enjoyed the fact that I could walk from my lodgings near the main part of the university to the Faculty of Engineering on the other side of town and need an umbrella only for crossing streets.

Thank you for the kind words.

No, these are all hand held as tripods are not allowed in the interiors and for San Luca the light was bright. I am finding that with good shot discipline the IBIS in the Z7 is very, very good. Some of these were shot with the manual 24 TS.

Thank you.

It is a stiff climb on a hot day to San Luca. I cheated and took the car.

Yes, the porticos are brilliant, also on hot summer days. Many of our Emilian towns have them, but none like Bologna.

Many of my Engineer friends studied Engineering at Bologna University. My wife did modern languages there.

Very nice!

I have an online friend in Bologna but I have never visited. I have it in my plans when I can get to Europe, as a stop on the Milan-Firenze leg.

If you have the opportunity it is a wonderful city to spend a couple of days.

I remembered you saying that you almost always have to shoot without tripod. But your work is so excellent that it really is amazing what you accomplished hand held!
