    #33 Dusting off the Hard Drives

    While walking around Florence I saw these three police women up ahead so I hurried up to get closer to them. Just as they were about to walk past the guy who was walking his dog the left police lady looked down in appreciation of the dog which was something different and more human feeling about one of the three. I also liked the not so friendly look of the man on the right of the image.

    #33C Dusting off the Hard Drives

    In one neighborhood of Havana there was a square where many people congregated in order to try to access the internet, but first one had to buy an access card. This lady was enjoying her internet connection. I noticed her reddish glow under the red umbrella. She looked up as if to say hello as her partner in the red hat continued reading the newspaper. The girl behind the lady was in a FaceTime like mode on her phone and earphones.

    #34 Dusting off the Hard Drives

    How about some American Football !!

    This gentleman had a very colorful NFL history. First, he was an assistant coach for none other than Vince Lombardi at Green Bay where if I recall he garnered 2 Super Bowl rings. Then he answered the call of Don Shula at the Miami Dolphins also as an assistant coach where they had the perfect season and he again was on the Super Bowl winning team. This ring is a very rare Perfect Season Super Bowl Championship ring with his name customized on the ring as is the case with all winning Super Bowl team ring bearers.

    Art Peppler was nearly 90 years old when I took a series of shots at his son's house in my neighborhood in FL. After the session was over his daughter-in-la showed me his Super Bowl ring collection. Yes, it was a collection since in total he had 5 Super Bowl rings. Coach has since died, but this memory lives on as even today many of his children ask me for prints from that rememberable portrait session. Thanks coach for giving me time for this photo session toward the end of your life so that your memory survives until today.

    Let me explain the ring itself. It is a depiction of Joe Robbie stadium where the Dolphins won the Super Bowl in believe in 1972 in the first and only to this day perfect season with 17 wins and 0 losses. There are 17 small diamonds representing each team the Dolphins beat that year with the large center diamond representing the Super Bowl win itself.

    P.S.-I met coach at our clubhouse with a mutual friend of both of ours and he had a Super Bowl ring on that day. I never realized he had 5 different Super Bowl rings until our photo session. He was a bald headed man, but loved to wear a spiked baseball hat which looked like spiked blond hair was growing out of his head. He loved that hat and wore it every day on his long walks through the neighborhood every morning.

    #34C Dusting off the Hard Drives

    One morning while strolling around the side streets of Havana I came across this group of senior citizens exercising in a vacant lot with lots of graffiti on the walls and they asked me to join in which I did for about 3 minutes. After watching their routine I asked if they would pose for a group shot with the group "coach" front and center. This is the energetic group.

    Re: How about some portraits

    While shooting in Alberta, Canada, I came across a local bakery, which used traditional methods of baking. I asked for a portrait and used natural window light, which was more than enough to capture this very portrait.
