Lucca, A Bicycle For Every Trade.

Anyone need A Wedding Photograph.

Lucca is a city of bikes, I think this is a purely practical decision on the part of its citizens as cars are banned except for residents from the old town. It seems bikes have been a trendy way of getting around for a long time and we have lost some of the best models. Previous generations adapted bikes  for every profession. During one of the large markets in the Borgo Giannotti, here was a line up of historic bikes.

Spring and Summer Tuscan Storms create art



In Tuscany, we have thunderstorms during the warm months. These downpours keep our part of northern Tuscany green and cool down the air during the hottest months. The other benefit is the wonderful skies they produce. I always tell my guests Le Mura to enjoy the show. The other day Enzo went out with his pocket camera and captured some wonderful images just after an early evening downpour.
