When it's foggy in Perugia time stands still.
The carousel stands silent and figures appear and disappear into the fog.
Nothing moves, not even the photographer as he stands and waits for someone to enter frame.
He still standing there, frozen to the bone.

That's quite an array of awards David, a well deserving image too, the fog adds to the feeling of dejection and things that used to happen.

All the very best
