It seems like yesterday, I was actually young then! This shot of a window on the left bank of Paris, was originally made on Afgachrome. It had a speed of 50, one stop greater of Kodachrome II. It may come at a surprise but photos could actually be taken with low ISO speeds. 5
0 was really fast for color slides in those days. The lens was the superlative Canon 50mm F 1.4 FL.

My cousin's grandson, Simone is visiting NY from Italy and upon arrival for a supper at my home, became madly attached to my oldest cat, coda and my dog Charlie. There's no greater pleasure in seeing children interact pleasantly with animals. When children love animals it presages great character and goodness.

The building on the left with the flags is the municipal buildings Castellammare on Corso Mattarella. It was originally a convent that was expropriated in 1861 following the creation of the unified Italian state. Shot with the E PL-2 on a sunny autumnal day.
