I found myself wandering alone within the ancient walls of the
old city in Genoa, and a story developed right before my eyes. This shot is one of a series I posted contrasting the old (the city itself) with the new (ideas conveyed through the graffiti) and the old again (the elderly of the city).
When I snapped this image, I literally gasped, as had no idea this lady was there until she walked into the frame. She became my muse for the entire series. I spent the rest of the day in a trance, lost in an ancient city, capturing the people of Genoa.
