Writing with Light

Waiting

Walking through Rome, we passed by this art museum (I really wish I know which one it was) and the building itself was very interesting with Latin words carved into the stone but frankly it was this gentleman that fascinated me. I was across the street framing the shot and he just stood there….didn’t move an inch. I don’t know if he realized that he was in my shot but if he did it obviously wasn’t bothering him. I’m glad he was their I think he made the shot for me.

I converted this to black & white using Topaz B&W Effects as I think it enhanced the overall mood of the image.

As always you can click on the image to enlarge it.

  1. Nicely done Edith. Having mystery-man in the frame really adds perspective to the shot.

    I love that single person in the scene. Really gives perspective to how large the wall is.

    Wow again! I don’t think this picture would have had the same result in color … What brand of camera do you use?
