Rush hour Pantheon style
"Not so" rush hour
The lady in green
A typical street scene in one of Romes many back streets. The image of this lady with her shopping, mobile phone and style, sums up modern italy.
The big door
Rome, Italy. I loved the shadow on the man in the doorway.
Deep in thought
This chap was deep in thought in one of the side streets near Fontana di Trevi, Rome.
I love these market carts found in Rome. Good quality fruit too.
Trinita dei Monti
Back to that challenging light with the lower piazza in shade.
Scalinata della Trinita dei Monti
The light was awful for this shot. The church at the top of the steps was almost blown out and the lower piazza was in total shade. This mono conversion was about the best I could do with this image which I generally liked as a scene
Fontana della Barcaccia
It's always difficult to get a good shot of this fountain in Piazza Di Spagna, Rome. People crawl all around it. Despite this, I'm happy with this mono conversion.
This lady was posing for her friend who was trying an "arty" profile shot. I preferred this angle to capture that smile. Incidentally, the lady could not stop laughing.
This police officer was a serial whistle blower stopping people sitting down on the Spanish Steps by blowing loudly on her whistle.
Shadow of man in hat climbing the steps to the church of Trinità dei Monti found above the Spanish Steps.
Looking down the Spanish Steps.
Is this view ever people free? Although I like the manic appearance.
Scale in miniatura
Scalianata della Trinita dei Monti with a light minitaturisation effect. This I felt helped diffuse the harsh light.
Lost in Trinita Dei Monti
Phone calls, maps, all were consulted except other people
Windows to the world
These two girls were in deep conversation when I interuppted their flow for this image
Against the flow
Thankfully not much traffic.
