The quiet rooms and the streets around you

Here's your dose of Macerata Monday--windows in one of the small squares of Macerata's city center:




These windows are among my favorites in Macerata. I'm somewhat of a window-snapping photographer, as for some reason I love looking up at windows and finding their various shapes and styles.

The square that these windows look out upon is also quite charming, and sometimes, in the summer, there are jazz concerts or other events in the little square, where tables and chairs spill out from the bars and gelaterie that surround it. It makes me wonder if, during those events, these windows are wide open, with people leaning onto the shutters, listening to the music and the sounds of the crowds in the street, even as the summer lights begin to fade.

Hope your Monday was great! I'm off to Parma tomorrow...
