Lone Cat On Christmas

I was photographing this well decorated window at via Palazzo di Città and something behind the glass of the window caught my eyes. A cat was looking down to the street, most likely hewas left alone at home while the family was away celebrating Christmas.....

Male Fire Performers

Fire performers....can be interesting, affascinating in how they manipulate fire, handling the flames in their hands with ease, but the smell of kerosene spreaded around the place is quite unbearable and wonder if it can be harmful to health.....

This guy was performing in piazza Castello, and charmed a huge group of spectators.

Beauty And The Beast

Standing in front of the more than 500 years old Turin Cathedral is a red brick office building, the "Palazzaccio " .

The block of concret and metal building fully in contrast with the holy and elegant Cathedral, that is why it is often cosidered as a sore in the eyes for the locals.

Street Christmas Lights Up

I think this is the first year, lights are setup along via Mercanti , via San Tommaso and Via Barbaroux.

Via San Tommaso

Although the lights are pretty simple, but they did bring up the spirit of the Christmas season and is pretty great looking, very suitable for these small streets right in the center of the town.

Firemen Fun

Firemen fun day! Kids were allowed to put on their firemen's hat and cleared obstacles with the help of the real firemen in Piazza Castello.

Still not sure why is this event held in winter, but it is sure fun to watch as the tiny firemen proudly went through the obstacles....

Yellow River Po

Week of rain had turned the river po into yellowish, overflown the banks and flooded the Murazzi. From over the other side of Murazzi, as though the yellow river of China had reached Torino, the Murazzi was half immerged in water and the yellowish river was jusy kept rushing through....

Luckily enough, it is over now and the lost boat ' Valentina' was also found.

Houses By The River

These houses near to the river Po, from this view seem to be in some places far from the town center, but they are actually just located a short distance from the center and the other side of the houses is a busy main road .
