comments please

I have figured out -- slowly, slowly -- that if I want to look behind these doors, I should open them a bit;  so I have added comments to this blog.
 I would like to know what you think, and I will do my best to engage your thoughts with my answer.  thanks in advance.  robert


  1. Wonderful
    thank you for sharing

  2. mi piace lasciar qui un commento, e credo farai prima tu a tradurlo che io a scriverlo in un inglese foto è stupenda, la conosco bene, la ritengo unica anche per quel n.18 che tanto piace ad una nostra cara amica. Ciao Robert, è sempre un piacere.

  5. hello Alberto, I was wrong, it's actually a MacBook Pro :-)), but I am happy to share the same "environment" with you. ciao, Robert

  6. Questa foto mi piace molto, i colori del rosso e il senso dell'antico! Buona giornata Cri : )

  7. Hello Cristina. thank you, the "sense of the past" that most appeals to me about this is the way that the wall almost looks like gold leaf. It is from Florence, and I feel a harmony between this wall, and all the gold leaf of all the medieval and renaissance art that is there. una buona giornata a te. Robert

  8. Ciao Robert, mi piacciono le tue biciclette sempre perfette nella composizione e nella combinazione dei colori. PL

  9. Pier Luigi, I am honored by your presence and by your comments. Robert
