This jpeg represents the exhibition we did for Paris & Beyond which featured works by husband and wife Robb and Dale Johnson. Dale’s piece is to the left and is of a cafe in Paris with a red awning and the building has red trim right above the awning and there are white shutter on the widows with a few patrons at the tables - the tables are on the sidewalk and at right you see some figures. The artist uses a Diana lens and the image almost looks painterly and very rough in texture. The image to the right is by Robb Johnson of a street in Venice and shows many tables with chairs lining the street all the way to the far focal point. At right is a building with four white awnings at the center of the frame. The work is in a light sepia toned black and white.
