Wanderings…

31Jul10

spent the day wandering around today since the weather was fairly nice, so thought i’d post some photos.

Random Church

this is a church i came across. there are lots of these here.

Duomo di Milano

shot of the duomo. it was a beautiful day and i couldn’t resist. still haven’t been inside yet, and i just found out that you can actually get on the roof, so i’m really excited about that.

Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, Piazza del Duomo

couple shots of the galleria vittorio emanuele II, a shopping area next to the duomo. its named for victor emmanuel II of italy, who was the first king of a united italy.

looking down the central arcade.

i ended up going to pinacoteca di brera, an art musuem in the northern part of the city. mostly christian art, with a few modern pieces thrown in at random. saw some work by raphael and caravaggio as well as picasso and braque.

    Hey, you remember Art History class, right? With what’s her name “How now is this auto focus, I don’t want no auto focus!”? Yeah, these are the slides we’d start with at 8 am and and wake up to at 9:30 am. You’re making me sleepy. Nice stuff though.
