I live in Milan, and I’ve never seen anyone in a cape of any kind on the street at any time, and I always do (try to) notice what people are wearing. Maybe I have seen some, and just don’t remember it, but it is something dramatic, after all. The shot is lovely, though I would prefer a more flowing form, more like the cape of the lovely young lady in Antwerp.
Congratulations on the new format change. It’s already proven itself to me as user-friendly and easy-to-navigate. I’ve spent the last 30 minutes following links under the “Random Posts” section. Every time I think I’ve seen all your post before, I spot a new string of photos that I don’t recognize (like this one) and I find myself filled with the same sort of excitement and envy of your talent that I experience when I was first introduced to your blog back in 2006.
Thanks for the continual inspiration and observations!
