An aging statue in Verona, Italy

During the last two weeks I’ve been doing a lot of retouching work in Apartue on a job I did for a client and it got me thinking on two things. The first is that with summer winding down it’s been a long time since I posted any pictures on this blog. It’s a shame, because I really want to make this predominantly a photography blog. The second is that I too often take pictures and then leave them sitting in limbo inside of my computer. Partially becauae of insecurity about whether or not a picture will appeal to anyone outside of myself, partially just plain laziness, and partially to busy for it.

I found the above picture sitting in my Aperture library, and decided to throw it on Flickr along with some other stuff. It’s shot on Ilford Delta film, a fantastic film stock, and was taken in the sumer of 2007 when I went to visit some old friends in Verona, Italy. These old statues and buildings just speak Italy to me. I can almost smell the air when looking at this picture. Verona, by the way, is a lovely city that merrits visiting.
