I/She/He/They Stood There Waiting

Waiting was yesterday’s Friday challenge theme. We stood waiting in the queue for the 3rd “Grand Antique d’Aubert®” marble 2017 symposium organised by Italian marble excavation company Escavamar from Carrare. The show – we’ll get back to that in a forthcoming post – had not yet begun and I took this opportunity to shoot the candlelit footpath that went into the quarry and led to the beautiful and humongous black marble slabs carved out from the mountain.

Le penseur - The THinker Rodin

A few months before in Grand-Palais, we met that guy who had stood there waiting for a long long time.


May last year, waiting for the boat to take us back to Cannes.
