Fishing Buddies

I love this picture because it’s completely candid and you can see the authentic happiness in the faces of these guys.  Even though you can’t see much of his face, you can tell the man on the right has a big smile.

Back Alley, Richmond, VA

The other side of the building on the right is a lovely little downtown restaurant.  It’s funny how quickly the scene changes when you walk half a block, around to this end of the building.  Despite the litter and trash, I like the lines, the flow and the contrast of this image.

If you click the photo above you can see a larger image of it.

Inside The Sycamore

From the other side this sycamore looks solid and nearly invincible.  When walking around it you quickly discover there’s a gap at least 5 feet in length, exposing the inside of the tree.

Morning Paper

Passing through Piazza del Campidoglio we saw this man reading his newspaper.  When I returned the next day, he was there again, on the same step, reading his paper.  It struck me as very Roman.  I’m betting if you were to go there on just about any morning he would be perched on these steps enjoying the weather and catching up on the latest news.
