Captured this image while exploring a street in popular Cortona, where much of “Under the Tuscan Sun”, both the best selling book and movie version, takes place. Though I can’t say for sure, I think in this shot a father is spending a playful moment with his kids during a break from his work. Time and again I’ve witnessed and captured Italian fathers joyfully playing and snuggling with their children.

Note: My dear JPG friends please check out my latest essay. I'm hoping this is the kind of gender role story JPG is looking for. Thanks!
