Travel theme: Motion

As someone who owns a back catalogue that includes hundreds of racing cars in motion, this week’s Travel Theme should have been simplicity itself.  However, that seemed too easy and the link with travel tenuous although my teenage obsession with fast cars certainly took me on many an interesting journey.  Consequently, I have opted for something involving two wheels and two legs in motion, this photograph taken on a particularly wet day in Bologna.  I wonder what the conversation is between the two subjects – “Give us yer brolly mate!”…..or the Italian equivalent:

Bologna in the rain

    Great opportunist photo, looks like you were sat at a cafe table taking in the scene. MM

      I think I was under an umbrella kindly held by my photographic assistant (the lady wife :-))

    I love the way their paths are set to cross – or may be not

      Potentially with disastrous consequences – let’s pretend they did 🙂

    Very striking image, the ground really stands out with all the reflections, I like it.
    I hope it’s not tempting fate by mentioning rain in the middle of all this lovely weather. Although I’m a right one to talk, there’s rain everywhere in my blog.

    That’s so atmospheric with all those raindrops bouncing off the cobbles

      Many thanks – it is a perfect combination for photography in many Italian towns and cities – rain on stone worn smooth by countless feet over many centuries.
