Tourists with maps #2

Newer Older

These two young women were sitting at the base of the obelisk in the center of Rome's Piazza del Popolo, consulting what appears to be a tourist map of some kind. Now they're both looking at the map, looking somewhat puzzled and frustrated...

Note: having seen that this photo has become fairly popular, I decided to "tweak" it on Sep 25, 2009 to make it a little better. I began by lightening the shadows in the woman's pants on the left, and then adjusting the "hot spots" and "cold spots" caused by too much sunlight/glare in some areas, and too much darkness in others. Not sure anyone will notice the results of this work, but trust me: it is a better photo now!

***********************
These photos were taken during a week in Rome, at the beginning of December 2008. I was participating in a computer conference, but had some free time at the beginning and end of the trip; unfortunately, the weather was not very cooperative, and my photography efforts were sometimes interrupted by rain...
