{Rome, September 2009}

My husband and I had just stepped off of the Roma Termini and I was so in love with this scene, that I whipped out my polaroid land camera and pressed the shutter.  My heart sank as I realized that there were people at the bottom of the scene.

But I find that, as with a number of images I take, it has to marinate for a while.  I might not like it at the time, but after a while, it grows on me.  And that is exactly what happened here.  Does that ever happen to you?

I now love this polaroid shot, and I think that the people I captured add to the entire scene, the mood, the moment.  Exactly as I remember it.
