    Newer Older

    These two kids were sitting by themselves, against an old wall near the entrance to Castel Sant'Angelo in Rome. From what I could tell, they were sharing iPod ear-buds, so they both listen to the same song...

    These photos were all taken on Saturday, Dec 6th, after finishing a computer conference in Rome. I spent the morning wandering around the Coliseum and surrounding neighborhood, and then the late afternoon over by the Castel Sant'Angelo, and St. Peters. The swarm of starlings appeared over the river, just before dark, on the way back past the Ponte Sant'Angelo...
