From a compilation ‘People at work’ this candid / street pic was taken of a local barber at work.
This image was taken through a shop window in Brescia in the North of Italy. It would’ve been so easy to walk by and not notice the scene. I’ve titled this blog ‘People at work’ but really its a bit more than that in as much as its also people in their work environment. In this instance there’s the dynamic between the workers on one side of the counter and the customers on the other. I choose to shoot in colour as it added to the natural warmth that I associate wth cooking pizza, breads and cakes. There’s a small detail that amuses me too, and thats the couple at the far end of the shop in matching stripy T Shirts. (very cute).
This really is a very simple image. At first glance it looks like a glass tunnel that goes to infinity. In fact it’s one of many domed ceiling lights that can be found in older buildings, in this instance in the National Museum of Wales. It’s positioned over a grand staircase and allows light to flow into the building
