Rome was extremely crowded this trip. Famous sights were not busy, they were packed. I shoot places like Rome differently from other people. In these crowds it isn’t possible to get a decent shot of any famous landmark. Besides, once you have that it isn’t any better than a postcard you can buy anywhere. So, I try to look at the landmarks a bit differently and add in some candid street shots. I manged this at the Spanish Steps when an attractive blond walked into the frame. Campo de Fiori is an outdoor market, and a lesser known attraction, so it was not so crowded. Incidentally, Nikon Girl took my picture first. Vatican Spiral won a Picture of the Week award in a photography forum.
