Italy Torre del Lago Puccini

A romantic wooden gazebo on the placid lake of Massaciuccoli. As you enter the gazebo, there’s an inscription on top, from Lorenzo di Medici’s “A Song For Bacchus”: “Chi vuol essere lieto, sia: di domani non c'è certezza” (he who wants to be happy, let him be: nothing is sure about tomorrow”.
No wonder Puccini chose this tranquil retreat to concentrate on his music!!!

Thanks Pedro, don't even remind me of this spot, lol, here the little stopper together with the holder fell from the lens on the concrete floor and shattered it into pieces. The shot was done by that time :-)

Yeah, its a pain when you are on holidays and are resorted to use the 10 or 15 stops instead. These things make us wiser :-)
