A Woman with a Straw Hat, Lucca, Tuscany, Italy


I especially like it when I just happen upon a moment and place in time that calls out to be photographed. This woman was sitting on a bench on the wall in Lucca reading a book in the warm sunshine with the Church of San Frediano and Palazzo Pfanner in the background.



A different composition.



A potential patron studies the menu board for an outdoor lunch possibility.



This image captures two interesting points. First, the dramatic window frames and shapes that differ with each floor. Second, because most buildings here are hundreds of years old and made of thick concrete/stucco walls, some electrical wires are attached on the outside instead of burrowed or built into the structure. I suspect it makes maintenance easier for the electricians.



I wasn't sure this young man was going to turn away or collide with me - he had that look - but he laughed and turned.



Late afternoon, a reflected patch of sunset light makes this small section of wall glow.  There is a pair of pigeons building a nest under the eave at center - they've turned in for the night to coo.
