Just Do It






1-100t8740“A man dances with and embraces a woman as she tries to talk to him,” Altare della Patria (Alter of the Fatherland), Piazza Venezia, Roma, Italy, September 2016.

These shots were taken at the Monumento Nazionale a Vittorio Emanuele II (National Monument to Vittoria Emanuele II) at what I consider to be the most imposing structure in Rome. At its base is the Museum of the Unification of Italy, celebrating the country’s having united its separate kingdoms and territories. The lighting in the shots is natural, as the Autumn sun sets on the structure, bathing the marble in orange hues and changing it from stark white to match the earthy tones of the surrounding area. More shots of/from this structure in later posts.
