Genoa in dance

For the photo session as usual I reached Genoa using the d train to Milan to the Genova Brignole station .
In fact unlike the usual (but a “usual” in reality there is never …) we decided, together with the talented Carlotta to realize some photographs having the sea in the background, which naturally could not be missing in Genoa, but which also contained those are the colors in the houses that are typically seen in Ligurian villages.
The choice therefore fell on Boccadasse, an ancient fishing village in the city of Genoa, which is part of the Albaro district, not far from the Brignole station, in fact you can reach Boccadasse on foot in about 40 minutes or alternatively using the bus line 31 (about 20 minutes) as we did.
The idea was to get to the Borgo quickly to take advantage of the best light in the morning, take our photographs and then walk back the path back to the station, taking our photographs at the various points of interest along the way.
Once in Boccadasse we immediately realized that he would not disappoint our expectations. The colors of the houses are strong and lively, the narrow streets with cobblestone pavement, narrow alleys of other times and all seasoned with the blue of the sea in the background, all very beautiful indeed.
Despite the heavy bags and luggage, we managed to get off at the small beach of Boccadasse, very crowded early in the morning, but a lovely place.
We then continued the photographic walk along Corso Italia, a very long, wide and luminous avenue that runs along the sea and offers numerous ideas for photographs. The avenue leads directly to the city center, in particular since we did not have much time still available, we chose to favor the arcades of Via XX Settembre so as to include the lights of the shops and some passers-by in our photographs.
A rich portion of the good Ligurian focaccia has kept me company on the train during the trip back to Milan, I will certainly organize another shooting in this beautiful city, there are many points of interest still to be discovered.
