Waiting For His Sweetheart

Florence, Italy

After a hard day of work Pietro walked to his wife Bianca's shop where he patiently smoked a cigarette and waited for her to close the shop.  Then they stopped for a quick dinner on the way home.

In reality, I don't know anything about most of the people in my photos, but it's fun to imagine what's going on in the scenes that I capture. :-)

    I was already wondering "how does he know?" did he ask in Italian? :-)

  4. It was impossible to not smile reading the story behind the scene, and it doesn't matter if it was just your imagination. Loved it! :)
    She looks like Dolly Parton, doesn't she?

  6. Quite often when I look at your images, I do the same thing. I am compelled to linger and imagine a story. That is so very interesting. I still conclude that this is the result of an impeccable sense of timing (and speedy fingers on the camera settings).

  9. It could be a movie scenery! It's beautiful, I like these clics "life in motion and moments"!

  10. This picture is like an Edward Hopper's painting!L'atmosphère et la lumière me font vraiment penser à cet artiste, ainsi que l'impression de deux solitudes ...
    I also like to imagine stories.
    Yours is quite romantic, let's keep it!

  13. Imaginating things about the people you take picture of is so funny... You have quite a romantic vision, in this case : I'll say that he found his burden a little too heavy, and decided to take a little break before returning to carry his shopping home... :)

  15. Lovely, lovely picture - and accompanying story too. I'm going away feeling warm inside.

    To let you know . . . now Blogger / Google has re-organised photo storage, I've gone back to posting daily at Message in a Milk Bottle

    instead of M2.

    Perhaps you might like to follow the photos there?

  17. I love this story. Honestly I am scrolling down from the top and didn't see this when I made my comment on the top post. Your pictures really do tell a story -- and I couldn't have made up a better one for this post.
