Aren't the photographers crazy? We saw this guy sitting very near the river, when we went to Trastevere. In WS the whole scene. Memories of wonderful day with TE friends.
Trastevere maintains its character thanks to its narrow cobbled streets lined by medieval houses. At night, natives and tourists alike flock to its many pubs and restaurants, but much of the original character of Trastevere remains. The area is also home to several foreign academic institutions including The American University of Rome and John Cabot University, the American Academy in Rome, the Rome campus of the Thomas More College of Liberal Arts, the Canadian University of Waterloo School of Architecture (between the months of September and December), and the American Pratt Institute School of Architecture therefore serving as home to an international student body.
The unique character of this neighborhood has attracted artists, foreign expats, and many famous people. In the sixties and seventies, the American musicians/composers Frederic Rzewski and Richard Teitelbaum, of the group Musica Elettronica Viva, lived in Via della Luce. Sergio Leone, the director of Spaghetti Westerns, grew up in Viale Glorioso (there is a marble plaque to his memory on the wall of the apartment building), and went to a Catholic private school in the neighborhood. Ennio Morricone, the film music composer, went to the same school, and for one year was in the same class as Sergio Leone.

rzeczywiscie smoeszne zdjecie tego faceta siedzacego pochylonego do tylu. Ladnie go ujelas. Fajna scenka.

A very nice composition of well matching colours and fine lines of the quay and the rushing water. A fine glimpse of daily life of a kind I always enjoy.

hello MAlgorzata ,

avevo già avuto modo di apprezzare questa tua bella foto, che rappresenta una situazione abbastanza insolita in una situazione di piena all'altezza dell'Isola Tiberina.
Sei stata bravissima nel coglierla e nei hai fatto un'ottima composizione ponendo il soggetto a confronto con le acque turbolente del fiume, il tutto con una buona nitidezza soprattutto tenendo conto della lunga focale con la quale hai dovuto operare.
Perfetti anche il contrasto e la saturazione.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

una foto curiosa, ben realizzata, con un taglio originale e ben presentata.
Bella anche l'immagine del ws.

Finalement, ce photographe a trouvé une position relativement confortable pour prendre son image. je crois que l'on se met souvent dans des situations ridicules quand on cherche un POV original!

The picture tells more than a thousand words.
Light management and composition are good.
The wild water/river makes the picture extra
