Today I thought I would surprise Daria with this photo. “Lisbon!” she exclaimed. “No, wait…”
Indeed, the Yellow Tram is something you find plenty of in Lisbon. But Giuseppe Garibaldi? Well, no, indeed, we find ourselves in Italy!
What you see here is Largo Cairoli in Milan. When we woke up for sunrise, we first took photos of the Milan Cathedral, the Shopping Mall and then went to the Sforza Castle. On the way there, we stopped at this roundabout.
I noticed the statue of Garibaldi and the Sforza Castle in the background and thought this would be a great composition if I got the left side of the image filled. Thankfully, Largo Cairoli is a busy area, even early in the morning. So there had been quite a few trams passing us, but most had too much advertisement on them – like being fully covered.
Then I saw this yellow/orange tram approaching Largo Cairoli. I was excited and pressed the shutter. Having had multiple tries already with other trams, I knew exactly when I needed to push it and how long I could do the exposure. I saw the driver looking weirdly at me when I got all excited about his beautiful tram. Well, can you blame me?
