I understand I should make you anonymous but if you enter my frame, I will click and think “thank you”.
This is a selection of people photos from my three visits of Siena.
I’d been looking forward to making this selection all week but once I started I had 60 photos immediately, even though while browsing I marvelled at my talent of ignoring people completely for weeks.
I live in the country, I can.
Siena proved the most giving regarding people photography. Not that I ever set out to do that – I do all I can to point my camera away from human life forms, but over there people just can’t hide. They run left and right, often before my eyes. And sometimes they also lie down. They’ve got a square just for that with a natural incline where horses race in the summer.
You will notice several doors, many of which have been posted on my first two blogs already on Thursdays when Norman Frampton has a door feast. Come back in two days, there will be more doors. And then post your own. Some other photos have been posted before too but I think it’s good to see them all together like this.
If you were in Siena in the last two years, chances are you will find yourself below. Slim but there are. This reminds me of a newspaper in old Yugoslavia that posted a random people photo with a circle around a certain person who then had a chance to call or write in, provide some proof of identity and collect some money. I can offer you homemade tiramisu instead. Va bene?
Let’s have a look. Images enlarge upon contact.
