Dick Carlotta

I spent the weekend in the Berkshires in Stockbridge, Massachusetts with some good friends. On my way out, I stopped in this little coffee shop / bookstore in town called Stockbridge Coffee & Tea. This gentleman was sitting so pleasantly in the corner and the lighting was so nice that I had to grab my camera and take his photo. After speaking with him, I learned that the painting on the wall is actually him sitting in that exact spot with the exact sunlight and shadows on the wall.  His sister, Lois Van Cleef,  painted this image and has it displayed right above his spot in the shop. If you visit Stockbridge, grab a coffee at the shop and tell Dick "Hi"... and make sure you don't take his seat!
