Portraits and People
Big Cities and Little 'uns
Here’s my bestie Rene in true form. We were in Venice for my workshop during Carnivale, so we all got dressed up and had a fancy dinner. It was completely ridiculous, especially with Wayne Norrie at our table. We’ve never laughed so hard. He said some of the craziest things that I would be crazy to repeat! You can see here how Rene made a short attempt at a rueful rebuttal, but then how was immediately ransacked with a hilarious laugh to which there was no defense.

This picture is all kinds of fake, and I’m not 100% happy with myself for taking it! You know, most photographers won’t tell you this, but I will. These are not even fishermen, really. I mean, they definitely know how to fish, but they make more money now by being photo-models than fishing… so… why fish? Lots of photographers go down there to get this kind of shot, and I’m not usually one to do the same thing as every other photographer. It just doesn’t seem that original. But, I figured, hey, if I’m gonna do it, let’s see if I can make something unique in my own style. So, in that way, I’m pretty happy with the shot.
