He sat on his knees and started to penetrate the tiles with hammer and chisel. I pulled my camera and just before I pressed the shutter, he stretched his back.

He noticed me taking the photograph.
It is hard! he said.
What kind of stone is it? I asked.
Granite said he.
Then he bent down and continued to penetrate the stone.

Today I decided to return and have a look. New nice tiles. Slightly more gray. Don't know what he was up to.

None of my business, anyway.

On this site there is material on photography, music, literature and other stuff I enjoy in life. However, most of it is related to my profession as an Internet programmer and software developer within the area of digital libraries.
