Cortile

This is another of those "where are they now" images. The site is a courtyard in Genoa, Italy. Many years ago, photos looked old after a few decades. Now images always seem fresh and really assume that timeless quality that  makes photography unique. After  more than four decades, this image is still perfect. Of course the subjects are all grown up and even dead. However, back in 1970, that proud grandmother, so attentive of her charges was very much alive. It's one of the strengths and great ironies of this craft. Where are they now, indeed.
