I know I shouldn’t fall in love with my photos, but this one is one of my favorites.
There are already lots of gorgeous Italian street scene photos out there. But if we look a little deeper, there are so many interior courtyard scenes like this one in Rome. I was able to line up the shot so all the lines lead to the beautiful female statue figure in the center.
The arches establish we’re standing at an entrance, peering in. The overhead light is dead center, almost pointing straight down at the figure. All the colors are pale except the greenery at her feet. To me, that brought life to the scene.
