Deb and I were in Lisbon on the last day of our visit to Portugal when I noticed these two people pondering something off in the distance. I was immediately reminded of a famous work of art by Duane Hanson called “Tourists.” And so I snapped the photo. I’ll have to admit that my wife and I come closer to looking like Hanson’s tourists than this Lisbon couple does, though I think my wife is much more stylish.
You might be interested in knowing that Duane Hanson casts his fiberglass and resin figures from real people. Most of the people in my photos are real, too.
