About this shot: This is another shot taken in front of the Bar degli Amici in Eboli, my favourite hangout!
This kind of portraits are inspired by some pictures I've seen here, on Flickr.
This is the Original Series from which I took inspiration.
The photographer who created this wonderful shots is theblackstar, a genius.
I hope this shots don't hurt the original creator, but I hope he will be glad to know that he's a source of inspiration for many other young photographer.
About this subject: Francesco is another childhood friend of mine.
One of most intelligent and cultured person that I know.
He's a sergeant of the Carabinieri. Maybe the most indicated person for this type of job.
His determination is incredible, his fortitude is ammirable, his dedication to this work is great.
In any situation, about his job, he always know what to do.
From some years he lives in Lipari, a small island in the Aeolian - Sicily.
Despite the good-looks of the island, in the summer months, it's not easy to live there. But Francesco doesn't discourages and continues to do his job brillantly.
He's a strong person. Years and years of sacrifice on the books, haven't scratched his determination and, indeed, have grown him.
It's really a pleasure, when he comes back to home, can begin with him new digressions of various type (everytime of high level) and listen his intelligent perspective on the things.
Many years ago, we were wondering ourselves about our future... "How will it end?" - "What work will we do?" ...
Today, I'm very proud that my friend has reached the goal he wanted!
