Weekly closing day

I took this photo some time ago but on an equally rainy day (actually today it began with snow which later turned into a continuous, sad, rain).

These are the outside tables of the Pizzeria we often go to. It was closing day but chairs and tables remain outside. A guy took advantage of the opportunity to sit undisturbed and read his newspaper under the umbrellas.

It seems very cold.
If he read the paper so slowly, he might be frozen.

By the way,do you remember the snowman I said.
you can see snowman in Tokyo in my Tokyo blog.

Cold but the view is so magnificent I can hardly blame him.

I like the way you have the bicycle handlebars in the foreground.

Great location for a pizzeria. Free musci as well in the summer? Ciao. A.

Oh, what a beautiful photo! I love that there are so many outdoor seating in the middle of the city. I wish NYC has more of this.

BTW, the bicycles in the foreground add a lot of character to the photo.

He must have been very keen to read the paper if he was happy to sit in the cold.

Judging by the crane in the background you're putting up a new colosseum in Verona?!

Il primo piano dei manubri di biclicletta danno una personalizzazione all'immagine. Ottimo
