The Dusk Series: Italy

The Dusk Series continues. Marguerite and I were in Perugia and Assisi, in Umbria, Italy, in mid May, and I experimented for the first time with images in a built, rather than natural, environment. It was interesting to realize, as is the case with forests, that dusk falls at different times in cities and towns. A main square will be in daylight at 7 pm, perhaps, but a side alley will have fallen into dusk at 3 pm. "Dusk" is a malleable term.

The transitory tone of the images--the speed and rush of them--well represents the four and a half days we were in Umbria. Moving so fast, the brain doesn't catalogue details; it just holds onto memories of color, movement and form. In that context, the images seem like good analogues for travel itself. Hope you enjoy them...
