Sunny morning

A very sunny morning. Piazza Bra is ready for Christmas: the Comet Star on the Arena (you can see the higher bit behind the trees), the merry go round (red and white pointy tent) and the Christmas tree (actually, two), and, finally, the sweets kiosks, just arrived. Passing by, you can smell the "croccante", the "zucchero filato" and "torrone". 

A flock of pigeons clearly smelled some bits that had been spilled on the pavement and flew down. I was a bit late with my camera and "caught" only one of them!...

Looks like an enjoyable place to be, especially the food! And I like the man on the horse.

Nice shot, The pigeon was "catched" finely.
By the way I'm getting hungry like the pigeon.

That looks like a lovely open space. I bet kids love it too!

I love street scenes and this is just so much fun to look at -- so much details in one photo.

I always see nougat/torrone (block of chewy egg white with sugar and almond) in Little Italy here. What do you do with it? Do you eat it as is or do you use it in baking?
