Q: I am really into my wildlife photography but cannot afford a super zoom lens, I have a 300mm and am considering a teleconvertor. Has anybody had a experience with these and would you recommend them?

A: Do you know?

The Henri Cartier-Bresson theme inspired me to do a photo essay on my growing collection of Italian people images.Shortly after we entered the main piazza of the small Tuscan hill town of Monte San Savino, I spotted this lively group of men. I’ve seen this kind of gathering in many towns and villages throughout the Italian regions of Tuscany, Umbria, and Lazio. Whenever I encounter one I wish I could be an Italian speaking fly near them.

Note: Please check out the essay. Next week I'll add more shots to it.

In the Revealing Italian Threads photo essay.
