I have one or two more pictures from San Lorenzo I want to post, but I’m breaking to write about this shot, which I took yesterday afternoon. I was sitting on my bus, waiting for it to leave Piazza Venezia (so yes, it’s taken through a glass window). There was a lot of security all throughout Rome yesterday because of the G7 talks that were being held here on Feb 13 and 14. This is the first of many meetings that Rome will be holding in 2009, as it’s Rome’s turn in the rotation. You can read the results of the meeting on the International Herald Tribune. There was an interesting deep blue color to the sky and I liked the idea of trying to squash all these layers together — the people walking, the Guardia di Finanza vans, and then the monuments of ancient Rome in the background. Why is the pictures sideways? Because it’s boring to have it straight!
