Jul 11, 1988

Not exactly sure where this is from, possibly Lisbon or Madrid. Not looking very expensive but powerful in what they mean, I love photographing rings on displays like this, often on sidewalks from street vendors with the light and gold so bright and shiny and romantic.

This was taken while traveling from England to Ireland and down to Morocco. Just me and a camera bag full of Nikon lenses and Kodachrome 64, a Eurail and Youth Hostel pass, a copy of Let’s Go Europe, and a sleeping bag. 6 weeks on the road meeting people and photographing morning, noon and night, such was the life of a twenty-something in the 80s between jobs looking for adventure with nowhere else to go.
