Chestnut People

Montebibbico,   23 October 1993
It was actually raining pretty hard - that's my excuse for being slightly out of focus.

Dear Chestnut People,

    From time to time, over the years,  I have had the opportunity to photograph many of my colleagues.  Presented here are some of my favorite photographs.   Emphasis here is on the photo - not the person - I like all of you just fine.  But maybe the picture I took of you didn't turn out just right or maybe I couldn't find the slide on my way to the scanner.  Don't worry.  I'll get you yet!   I'll get all of you you posted on this page as soon as I am able.
