Man with Croissants, Textures of Italy,
Florence, Italy, 2005
I chose to start with this photo, taken crossing the Ponte Vecchio Bridge in Florence, because it represents to me a lot of what Italy is about in a very tight composition; quality, texture and simplicity.
This is a photograph about textures, with the wet pockmarked cobblestones, the finely tailored wool suit, and the freshly baked croissants in the clear plastic bag, held by the aged hand.
