Trevi Fountain

Trevi Fountain

Trevi Fountain is one of the most visited sights in all of Rome. Show up there anytime between 8am and 9pm and you'll be fighting to get close to the fountain and surrounded by thousands of tourists. That's how i first experienced Trevi, though even then the magnificence of the fountain can be felt and seen. The next morning, before the sun rose, I was back at the fountain. At the early hour of 6am I had the fountain to myself, with only one or two other locals walking by infrequently. For the next hour I enjoyed photographing the fountain from different angles, using both my Leica digital and medium format film cameras. This was one of the last images I captured before just sitting down and watching the water stream down the fountains terraces. Over the next thirty minutes I did something that I often overlook when out taking images: just lowing down and enjoying the scene. I watched the sun rise above the buildings, the number of people increase, and the sounds of the city grow as it woke up to begin another Spring day.
