Lady of the trulli

September 2014

One from back in September when I was in Italy, shooting Malini and Bram’s wedding.

I haven’t written much about the actual wedding, largely because I don’t really have the words to describe the utter idyllic romance that is the Puglia region in Italy, the sumptuous luxury of Masseria Montenapoleone (wedding venue that was also accommodation),  and the fact that Malini and Bram planned the weekend not only to celebrate their union, but for everyone to enjoy the surroundings and each other.

At the 3 day event, afternoons were do-as-you-please. During one of these lulls, I tagged along with a bunch of my extended family, many of whom I’d met for the first time, to the UNESCO heritage listed town of Alberobello, famous for its trulli dwellings.

I saw her, of the picture above; a buoy of stillness in a sea of frantic tourists.

I’ll admit it was the tshirt that caught my attention.

In the long while I was right in front of her, she never even looked my way.

I want to attribute this to the discreteness of my camera, but I reckon it’s just desensitization to endless snap happy tourists.
