Italian Man Drinking Espresso on the Narrow Streets of Como, Italy

This photo seems to say "I am Italian." It shows a typical scene in Italy: narrow cobblestone streets between stone buildings, the Italian flag, a man on the street drinking his espresso, and a bar. I took this photo in the town of Como at the south end of Lake Como.

I processed this photo as an HDR from a single RAW image, then converted to black & white (with some sepia), and then mixed back in some of the original colors to highlight the Italian flag, sign for the bar, and the man.

You can buy this photo here, with many options including standard prints, canvas gallery wraps, gift cards, mugs, T-shirts and much more.
