Photographer's Note

This view was taken in the Piazza di Campo dei Fiori in Rome.
"No churches, no palaces, no obelisks, but life (the horse-market) and death (the gallows) are the subject of this plate. Campo de' Fiori was paved with stone only in the XVth century and that explains why it is called Campo (field). The reference to the flowers is uncertain.
The horse market has been replaced by a vegetable-market (previously in Piazza Navona) and the gallows by the mournful statue of Giordano Bruno, but Campo dei Fiori is busy as ever (also at night). The square is slightly longer than it was as the block of houses opposite Albergo della Vacca does not exist any longer." www.romeartlover.it

I like the geometric lines that the buildings create trimming the sky, in a strange 'diagonal' downward movement.

I cropped the original picture and I applied more blue and red saturation levels.

I hope you like it.
