A long time ago I did a few photos about “Buswatching.” Well, this is my version of that on the cross walk. I tried this in Stockholm while waiting for my friend and found it a really cool way to capture the nature of people. This is the crosswalk just before you enter in to Piazza Venezia, and so there are constant cars whizzing by. I think it’s something I’ll continue and I have a few shots I like, but I chose this one first for a specific reason. How can you instantly tell he lives in Rome? Ok, no it’s not the briefcase, but the carefree way he is crossing even as the traffic bares down on him. Two seconds after he passes the scooters, buses, and cars will stream by him, but he’s not worried. He knows the drill. You’ve got to step out and go, or they’ll never let you pass. Those are the rules! If you are scared….might as well stay on the sidewalk.
