Inside a local hardware store in the town of San Quirico d’Orcia I felt as if I was looking into the mind of the proprietor, an 80 year old woman, who has been in this shop for more than 50 years.
There was no room to walk more than 5 feet into the space, and then ask a question such as, ‘….do you have bar-b-cue skewers?’ or any other ordinary hardware store request; you got 3 centimeter nails? measuring cups? freezer packs? and to my surprise she would take a stick and squeeze through some slot behind the counter and enter the 4th dimension, and come back with what I asked for!
It seemed worthy of making a photograph if only to remember what an incredible memory she must have.
