Yesterday my mum arrived. She is staying for the weekend and I took her to tango last night. This was also a good opportunity to try out my tango shoes after getting them changed and repaired by the cobbler. It’s like having totally new tango shoes and they fit really well. It was the first time since summer that I felt totally at ease dancing on these shoes and this time it was not because I’m so used to their quirks, but because they actually fit. The blue vespa I saw on the way from my driving lesson to the cobblers. I liked the contrast between the blue and the orange brown of the wall.

  1. Nice shot.

    You’re right the contrast of the bike against the wall is very striking indeed.

  9. wondeful colors and textures…other than the pleasing color contrast that you mention, the texture on the ground where the scooter is parked and on the wall adds a bit more to the final result !
