ROME, LAZIO, ITALY – While living in Rome in 2011, I would often go for long walks through the city, camera in hand. My sole purpose: take pictures.
I remember this evening vividly. It was stormy. I ended up in Piazza Barberini unexpectedly, and while juggling a phone conversation was trying my best to get a good shot before darkness took the remarkable blue of the sky. I waited for people to leave the photo space. I tried to keep my camera steady. I ended up snapping this – and it’s been one of my favorite shots ever since.
