While strolling along a street in Rome, Italy, i glanced into a tailor’s shop and saw the workplace of an artisan……not a toga in sight!

Just a retired old guy who loves looking for an eclectic mix of subjects to photograph, from people, to places, to concepts, and enjoys all aspects of the hunt, the find, and the shot, plus dabbling in the post production.

    Maybe no togas right now, but looks like they’ve got plenty of white thread stashed and ready should the need arise! :-D Neat capture, Phil!

    well, if there’s to be a resurgence in togas, the place is ready!
