It’s Been a Long Day
This shot was taken just outside of Santa Maria Maggiore probably at about 6 pm. I loved this couple sitting on the steps, probably at the end of a long day of sight seeing. She’s resting her head on his should as he looks at the map to figure out where to go next. It’s a site I see often here. The kind of glazed over end of the day look that tourists get after trying to cram in thousands of years of history and monuments in one day. Rome can be overwhelming in that sense and I think people don’t plan well enough for the toll it can really take on you.
