Captured this in Monte San Savino (a charming village atop a hill dominating the valley of Esse torrent in Tuscany) just before a downpour. This shot speaks to me of all the times I’ve seen groups of elderly Italian men socializing, women friends shopping and touring together, and loving couples who’ve been together many years.

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!

    You hear that some cultures are a little more stand offish but I heard that Italians are very friendly. I do hope to get to go to Italy one day. Great shot.

    I wonder if this is the Italian equivalent of old men sitting on the courthouse square whittling. Good shot

    Deb, this is a very "verbal" image... all that you say in text is so clearly visible... I like it!
