My "couples" image is one included in the previous post for the calendars. This is the image I get the most comments about. It was completely a serendipity moment. Again I was wondering Venice, and I came across the older couple walking quite a ways off. Instantly I thought they were perfect. I love the fact that he seems to be helping her along. (Did you see her walking with a cane?) I wondered what they had been doing...perhaps shopping in the market nearby or maybe he was playing bocci ball. Anyway, I was walking very quickly to catch up with them. I had the camera up to my face focusing away, when I heard the footsteps of the other couple passing along side of me. Without really getting a good look at them I swung the lens to wide angle and snapped the shutter. I was thrilled when the film came back and I saw the image. Some of my friends say it reminds them of the "a diamond is forever" commercial.
Anyway it's a fun little image. I've made several cards from it. It's great for anniversaries.
