The middle of the summer

Street photography

It is summer—night time. The air is humid. It is warm. I cycle downtown. I try not to hurry too much, but I am a bit nervous. I turn left in Via Mercatello. I see the lights on at the bar at the corner. I recognise some people who stand on the sidewalk in front with a glass in their hands. I reach the end of the road, turn right and see the back of the cathedral. I get to the main square and slow down but do not stop. I make large loops on the cobblestones of the piazza. Then another one. I stop in front of the Bertazzola. One foot on the ground. The other is on the pedal. I see people standing outside the bar under the arches of the municipality. Young couples sit on the steps of the Cathedral not far from me. They whisper to each other. I feel the heat of the day which was trapped in the stones of the piazza and is now freeing itself. This is the middle of the summer.
