I get up early on Mondays so that I can tidy up the apartment a bit before F, my collaboratrice domestica (domestic), shows up. I’m actually too embarrassed to have her see the post-apocalyptic state of my “man cave” since her previous visit.
Because of the fire drill-like scene around my place on Mondays, I don’t have time to have breakfast before F arrives. So, once she rings and we exchange pleasantries, I get out of her way and head to one of the local bars for an Italian-style colazione (breakfast).
Here in Italy — at least around the Greater Veneto where I live — mornings are a rush for the locals, too, as most Veneti ignore having breakfast at home, opting instead for just an espresso, cappuccino or caffè latte – with or without a brioche (pastry) or krapfen (jelly donut) – at the train station, bus depot or somewhere along the street heading to their respective 9-to-5 domiciles.
This being MACRO Monday’s turn in the weekly Phoneographic Challenge, I thought I’d give you a close-up view of my simple MACROlazione captured on my iPhone5.

If you occasionally shoot with an iThingie, why not join in the fun and hone your craft. There’s a rotating Phoneography Challenge each and every Monday. For details, visit Sally’s Lens and Pens by Sally.
Until next Monday, let your iThingie be your lens.
