    with the big yellow light, as they said once.
    I've been holed up in my little studio room too long, and going out only to the gym and (few) dinners. As I'm going to spend a week at the office, a daytime outing in order to see pople in their natural habitat was more than in order.

    But first, energy.

    Delicious, of course.

    So, I get the bag and head west for a few hours.
    There are enough people outside. Most seem undecided. Maybe it's the big light up there.

    Some are discussing business

    And some are the business, or so it seems

    Some relax,

    Some push the energy of youth, and their luck with it

    And some think.

    Me, I'm up there, looking around.

    Northeastern Tuscany, did you feel the recent earthquakes?

    Out of cramped spaces

    Alf, I was intrigued by your comment "...holed up in my little studio room". I loved your resulting body of work, but was amused by its close proximity to the subjects, rather than the distant of someone wishing to escape closeness. I'm glad you enjoyed the opportunity to get out and shoot.

    What I'd give to be in an environment with masses of humanity!

    I really must get hold of the 45 f/1.8 - it seems to work so well on the streets and I always enjoy your work.
