In Siena, Italy, I peeked into a work shop of a mosaic artist who worked with chips of colorful tiles to create intricate images. His work bench was strewn with wooden containers fulled with the colorful bits of glass.

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.

    we also visited a shoemaker while there, as well as this shop. Such fun seeing how the other parts of the world go about their lives!
