A couple of days before departing Italy for India, Nigel decided it was time to see a barber for a haircut. We visited the small town of Agropoli, south of the Amalfi Coast. This very cool young man worked from a barber’s shop that was more like a museum inside. After he’d worked his magic on Nigel, I asked him if I could photograph him and proceeded to coax him out to the doorstep where there was better light. Afterwards, an older barber who had ‘helped’ the portrait session by providing scissors as a prop, approached us with a piece from his ‘museum collection’ – a bellows-style camera. He indicated that he had a problem with it – he could not get the lens to retract and it was obviously collecting dust. With a bit of fiddling and pushing we solved the problem and showed him how to release the catch and he was obviously thrilled. They had no English; we have only basic Italian; I love it that we can usually get by and experience every-day memorable moments.
