Imaging in Italy: A Photographic Walking Tour of Rome – Day 2

Roman cats, Oct 14, 2003

Our first activity Tuesday morning was a review of Monday’s (digital) photos, with expert commentary and pointers from Tony. He went on to talk about other aspects of imaging, but I confess I wasn’t paying as much attention as I should, distracted by these fuzzy little Romans:

After lunch (at an excellent, old-fashionedosteria, da Alfredo e Ada, via Banchi Nuovi 14) we started walking and shooting again,to Piazza Navona. This time I was looking for details:

…but was still attracted by architecture:

People were also interesting. We chased the group in the photo at the top down several streets to get them, with their little red hats, in front of the Pantheon.

In the evening we went to the Villa Borghese gardens. The plan was to view the sunset from the Belvedere, but we were so busy making photos of everything else that by the time we got there the sun was completely gone. However, we got some interesting evening views of the Piazza del Popolo below.

We walked down the hill and ate at Ristorante al Vantaggio, good food and a good red wine, something local (Lazio region) made with Montepulciano and Sangiovese grapes.
