Mystery Man in Venice. Sunday Morning Photograph.

Was he looking to start trouble?

The night was dark and cool in this city of canals in Italy. The air was still and quiet. The only sound was the occasional crackling of crushed pebbles under my shoes as I walked. A shadow appeared in the corner of my eye. I turned around. A mystery man in Venice wearing a jacket and a scarf appeared in the narrow alley with a lit cigar in his hand. I could not see his eyes; but I could feel his glare as he looked straight at me. Was he looking to start trouble?

Final Boarding Call

Actually, the man is the late husband of a friend of mine. He sadly passed away on Saturday, January 2, 2021. This photograph is dedicated to his wife in his memory.

When I saw the way he was standing in the alley, I quickly took the photograph…

…too quickly, apparently, as the photograph is blurred. To me, that only added to the overall effect of the grainy photograph.
