On hot summer afternoons I love to wander the winding cobblestone streets and narrow alleys of the medieval hilltop village of my birth, searching for interesting scenes of everyday life. This image of an octogenarian casually sitting in the shade doing a crossword with his cane resting at his feet immediately captured my attention. It gave me hope that I will still be able to do my weekly cruciverba at his age!

“Cruciverba” was the winner of the 10th Accenti Photo Contest and recipient of the $1000 Grand Prize. Click here for more details.
