One day while wandering around Rome I found myself on top of the Palatine Hill. The weather was rainy, the air was hazy, and I thought I’d go home with no good pictures. While resting my feet at a bench, my eyeline wandered and rested on this burst
of color hidden in the undergrowth. The flower was behind some other grass and I was surprised at the way the lens seemed to bend the light around the obstacles, and leaving what looked like shadows over the picture. I liked the effect.
