I love your Pisan walks especially. The rivalry with Livorno must be really something! You give me such a laugh with the comments. :)

These are tremendous images that reveal little snippets of life. I love your selections and your sense for telling a story.

What a funny set of shots, VP! The brick wall is great, it has more or less the same design builders made in wood inside the walls of the new buildings after the 1755 earthquake.
