Always wear your sunglasses
Lens: SMC Pentax FA 50 mm f/1.4 Camera: K-7 Photo Location: Ponte coperto di Pavia ISO: 200 Aperture: F8

Even when it's misty and you're walking on a covered bridge.
This is so typical Italian, sometimes I suspect them they even sleep with their sunglasses on

That's a great shot Karen. I see plenty of opportunity for CA but yet, I see none (and yes, that's one of the first things I look for, followed by obvious dust). She's not as bad as the people I see wearing sunglasses inside, in a dark room. Cooooooooooooooooooool..... pffffft

LOL! Thanks Jeff. I always look at the things you mentioned too, and tilted horizons. Unless done on purpose, I'm a bit allergic for them.

Thank you! Don't be, this is my once in a year lucky shot, but hearing this from you, the master of street shots makes my ego feel good.

Thanks Dave. I tried the b&w, but I liked this version better, although I'm a big b&w fan.
So you're saying, a lot of Italian people have tired peepers? LOL!

But the horizon is tilted by nature!

Great shot Karen

Blame the 60's italian movies where all the coolest people lived in their sunglasses

this shot makes me want to go back to Italy (not that it would take much arm twisting)

So am I, but that doesn't say I always have to show it that way?

Thanks Eddie, I wasn't going to twist your arm.

It's a work of art Karen.
For the wall. For the stock image library.
For all time.
Classic.

Very pleasant scene . Also, I tried the mental exercise of taking the glasses off and came to the conclusion that she looks cooler with them
