There are lots of newspaper stands all over Rome -- most of which carry a variety of foreign-language magazines and newspapers...

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...

    thats a great photo.. i love how the man contrasts the newspaper stand, with the colors and the textures and just the overall feel :)

    I think presenters/publishers find this photo useful because it symbolizes people's curiosity/thirst for knowledge/wanting to stay updated with the news. Also the dress would not offend most cultures and it can be used in educational material for kids. I am planning to use it in a presentation about user-centered websites. I will add a link to here and if I make the presentation public I'll send you the link to that. Thanks!
