Description This is another of my favorite photos that I took in Italy. I had been searching for the perfect bar-themed photo, when I came across Bar Firenze in San Gimignano, near Siena in the Tuscan region of Italy. It was fairly cool and had been raining off and on throughout the day, which had the wonderful effect of keeping many of the tourists indoors (and out of my shot).Generally, I'm a fan of bright, sunny photos, but I love the mood set by the dreary, early-spring day and the rain puddles pooled under the cafe tables.This photo makes a great gift for someone with a new bar or with coffee or wine themed decor. And it pairs wonderfully with 'Vin di Toscana,' my black and white shot of a row of wine bottles.
Linda Curty, Winchester, Tennessee Member Since October 2008 Artist Statement I'm a photographer. Photos have been part of my life for as long as I can remember. - My grandparents were photographers. My dad is rarely without his camera. My uncle always says, "If you can't see the camera ... the camera can't see you!"
I started honing my love and learning the science of photography in my college photojournalism class. The science - I think that's one of the things that draws me to photography - by applying the rules, the rule of thirds, the golden mean, proper lighting, and more - you can capture and even amplify the beauty around you.
Photography gives me a way to create art and beauty in a way that my hands - through drawing, painting, or sculpting - never could.
For many years I made portraits and captured weddings. Now I prefer to focus on my travel and landscape art and create tools to help other portrait photographers.
