Artist's description:

This is a November 1995 image of an older couple, each with cane, encountering a main lying in the grass on the Promenade du Paillon on the southwest corner of Avenue Felix Faure and Rue Alberti in Nice, France. On the northeast corner in the left background is a pharmacy and in the right background is a book store, Librarie Acropole. The man lying in the grass was oblivious to the couple but the couple was greatly scrutinizing the man in the grass. The apparently affluent couple (vis-a-vis their attire and footwear) seemed a bit astounded by the man in the grass. Apart from the somewhat astonished looks of the faces of the couple, what most caught my attention with this scene was the precarious balance maintained by the couple with the assistance of their respective canes. Hotel Aston la Scala is just out of the frame to the left on the northwest corner of Avenue Felix Faure and Rue Alberti.

Materials used:

This photograph was created from a Kodak Tri-X negative scanned with a Nikon Super Coolscan 8000 ED and processed via Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop before being printed as a giclee on archival 100% cotton rag fine art paper.
