Captured this within the main piazza of Calcata, a medieval village (about 30 miles north of Rome) that sits atop 150 foot high volcanic stump surrounded by dense forest. The ponytailed man is one of the 100 artists and bohemians from around the world that live there, including Pancho Garrison, a former choreographer from Texas who runs Grotta dei Germogli, a nouvelle Italian Restaurant in a mosaic-lined cave.

In the Calcata photo essay.

    This is nothing short of AWEsome... among the best images on this site. It has color, history, texture, perfect light, human interest and SO much more. It could serve as a study in any photography class. Take a bow, Deb... SUPER!!!
