Photographer's Note

photo taken on Piazza Farnese, location of the french Embassy in one of the most extraordinary and rich palazzo of Rome. This place is close to piazza dei fiori (place of the flowers),where a daily flower and vegetables market is held, hence the sanitory services...
Rome, or italy for that matter, must be the only place in the world where you can see fashionistas (my own invention, a mix between fashion victims and chicas, spanish for girls...lol) wearing gucci or versace shades, answering their latest cellular phone and taking a pause for a cigarette working as garbage men or women...;-)) i find it very cool... Had they not this outfit, one could easily ignore them as regular tourists...;-)
Italy is also the only place i know of where policemen, while inspecting your bag or yourself at the entrance of the vatican are talking with the mamma on the cel phone...;-)) quite a different attitude isn't it? I fid it cool somehow... i have some more fun pics for you in stock from my week end in Rome...

PS: for those who might think the blond lady was actually singing opera arias, i must sadfully say that she was merely yawning...,;-)
