911 | Somewhere in Rome, Italy
Yeah that’s admittedly pretty vague, as titles go. I think a second earlier or later, or maybe a step to the left or a step to the right, and this’d be a photo I’d like, rather than a near miss. I’ve tried to sort out what I think are blown highlights on the lady’s blouse in the middle in Photoshop, but to no avail; I’ve now started to think those bits of the blouse that are white in front of you are actually supposed to be white.
Wandering round Rome was an experience I’ll not forget. What impressed me most was stumbling across Roman ruins that weren’t major tourist sights; the way you could turn a corner and find the remains of an old amphitheatre with traffic going round it, or even stumble upon something as famous as the site of the Circus Maximus (which was now nothing more than a big heap of wasteland, but hey…at least it’s Roman wasteland underneath).
