Hanging from a centuries old stone wall in San Gimignano, a hill town in Tuscany, Italy, this hand crafted iron dragon once held torches each evening for street lighting.

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.
