cafe interlude

Arches CP 300 gsm, 12" x 9".

after a long day of trekking museums, piazzas and byways in old rome, we fell into a cozy table for two in a cafe in the piazza navone. we'd already been there at dawn, when it was completely empty, and now we sat and watched as tourists, buskers, and every stripe of artwork and souvenir retailer churned past. like humanity served up in sushi boats.

this is jan's favorite moment, pouring out the sparkling water for that first cold sip of refreshment. we already have our cafe and espresso. the pink table cloths were unique to this restaurant, and nicely matched the rosy color of our mood.

love the angle...and they just look at you when you order "sparkling" water...it's "with gas" or without. Especially like the squared-off treatment of the background figures
