A simple street scene in nice light.
« on: January 08, 2019, 10:36:32 am »

Don't know how I managed to get this with so few people in it.

I love the scene. But I have to say I wish there were more people in it.

The place looks a bit deserted but I like it a lot. The quality of the light is excellent.

Puts me in mind of a square we frequent in Venice, but without the people.

Thanks for the comments.  I should have said it is Venice but not a typlical shot.

I shoot stock virtually full time and this is an image that will sell well.

I know the square well. Just avoid that osteria on the far right, like you would the plague: crooks.

Keith, it's in Venice... you should be going to Harry's Bar looking for the spirits of the late Michael (Winner) - or AA Gill.

Together with Café Florian?

But in all honesty I've no interest in visiting the fashionable, obvious and extortionate.

For the experience, I'd rather spend some hours in the Café de Flore in Paris with the ghosts of my old favourites including Jeanloup Sieff!

Of those moments I enjoyed with Ann, sitting in an outdoor bar of the Carlton in Cannes, she with her Campari Soda in hand, and I with my G&T, watching a helicopter negotiate its business on a yacht in the bay was about as unreal as it gets. I asked the PR manager of that hotel if we could shoot some images on the property; he asked for which client, and when told it was for a beer company, he ever so nicely refused, saying the images would clash... ironically, however, we got our petty revenge by sitting out in the bay on a Riva, shooting our model and a can of the stuff with the entire hotel visible in the background.

That's partly what I meant with my pro and personal photography being the same buzz.

She looks like she needs that beer to cool down.

I'd have loved to have had a chance to meet Gill, a witty man and superb writer. Winner I think I have managed very well without.

I'd loved to have met him too, just not in Harry's.

I think I really took to the print persona of the "poor boy from Willesden"; whether his style with words and culture was a literary fabrication for press purposes or not is over my head to know, but his casual throwaways about Portofino etc. gave me much fun, as in his place I could envisage people I knew at the time. Gill was simply fascinating. In the years I read him, I never got the slightest hint as to the identity of the blonde.

Surprisingly, another Sunday Times stalwart whom I enjoyed was Jeremy Clarkson; funny in print, but a total bore (to me) on that car show for kids: Top Gear.

Almost, but not quite: the cooling down need was the skipper's.

During that set, Ann was using the spray bottle to kep the T-shirt wet, and the skipper asked if he could do that. The model laughed her assent and so he managed to get himself a story for the grandkids. And I for LuLa. Who would have thought...

Nicola Formby, I think.

Oh, Rob, Top Gear wasn't a car show. It was a program in which three middle-aged overgrown schoolboys had fun, doing really silly things. But I agree with you about Clarkson's writing.

And it developed quite a following among those other middle-aged chaps whomwould have liked to do those silly things themselves. A group, if I’m honest, in which I must include myself.   ;)
