Italy Photos #1 
(Piazza Navona, Rome)

These are probably the two funniest photos on the entire trip.  Apparently, this Japanese tourist was videotaping me for some time and I wasn't paying any attention to him.  i didn't know he was there.  Finally, he walked around me, but I still didn't look up, I just looked around his legs.   So then he knelt down in front of me...I look up and his camera is about one foot from my face.  I just said "hello" into the camera, and apparently he was satisfied with that as he smiled, nodded and walked away.  Very odd.  

I enjoyed the lower photo because everyone else seems to be moving and I'm just sitting in their midst.  I have to hand it to my friend Terry...she did a great job framing this one.

Done on location in front of the Palazzo Vecchio.  (about 40 minutes) 

Ballpoint pen on watercolor paper

This is actually the "duplicate" David, placed in the original's location in front of the Florentine City Government building, The Palazzo Vecchio.
