Tough day at work. It’s incredible how much energy I have to spend and how much work I have to do just to be able to perform my job. Somedays when I finally worked out all the crisis, the misunderstanding, the legal flaws, the economical hidden benefits, the political equilibria, I am so exhausted that I go through my real job as quick as possible. This is not a good way to work, but I try not to care excessively, since there isn’t really much I can do.
Anyway, today it has been one of these days, so later in the night I had a long dog-walk. Walking relaxes me. The air was fresh and pure, good for night photography. I went to this area of my neighborhood, Villaggio Olimpico, were the entrance halls of the apartment buildings seem big cages. All but cozy, if you ask me.
I can’t really think of any plausible reason why a cage could have sounded like a good idea to the architect who designed the halls, except maybe if he was planning a scene for one of Dario Argento’s movies. I can totally see a lady running from the killer between these pillars, trying to get in one of these cages, just to find herself trapped one sec before being stabbed. And a lot of red, dense, ketchup looking stuff spattering around, over the ground, over the bars, over the stairs.
If any of you readers is an architect and wants to share an answer, please, I’d really like to be enlightened.
