Museo Atelier Canova Tadolini (150 A/B Via Del Babuino), a museum-in-a-restaurant, is one of the greatest tourist bargains in the city. For three euros, a visitor gets a cappuccino, a plate of cookies and a chance to study the plaster casts used by master sculptors Antonio Canova and Giulio Tadolini. While standing on a mezzanine, Brown focused on a man and his espresso. When a waiter stuck his hands into the lower right portion of the frame, the composition was complete. A shutter speed of 1/60 second froze the scene.
