I love how you presented this! An even closer, nearly abstract, shot could be fun too :)

Nice series of folks-at-work with a good choice in framing and sequencing, nice true colors, and plenty of environmental context to go along with your story. I especially like the last shot (but might be tempted to crop out the half-guy on the right).

Thanks everyone! I agree about cropping out the guy on the right. I wasn't paying attention because I was focused on ensuring that I got in the "Wall Dog" on the ground who was assessing the progress of the work.

It amazes me that we still paint walls by hand. I think we're better for it, but imagine it's probably cheaper to print-and-hang.

Looks like I'll have to visit Venice more often. Thank you for sharing a little bit of you and your memories! S-
