last evening

I had hoped to record the 5pm sound of the siren for work in Soriano to end AND the church bells that usually follow (something akin to the competitions between Don Camillo and Peppone, find the book The Little World of Don Camillo or the old b and w film at YouTube) but for some reason the siren went at 4.45 and the camera waited in vain for the church bells to ring again after the siren.

The camera - well, I say I was holding it discreetly, but it wobbles a lot. And the movie begins with a little circus of getting a van through the inner gate (where the funeral notices are posted, on the left, lethal to stop and read!) below our window... as you see, cold and wet.
