  • Made the mistake of going to Pisa, Italy. Of course, I went straight to the "leaning tower", and was inundated with dozens of idiot tourists all taking pictures of themselves posing as if they are holding up the tower. Instead of actually looking at the buildings, artwork, architecture and beauty of the place, they seemed happy to strike moronic poses. Anyway, I left and walked sadly down the small side streets and came upon this dog in a window, looking for it's guardian, I was sure.

    Years later, I was selling a few photographs in an art show at a coffee shop, and this one sold several copies.
