During the first time Fred and I lived in Italy, we took a walking tour of medieval Rome. Just as we approached the charming Fontana della Tararughe (water fountain of the tortoises that was built in 1581), I saw what appeared to be the oldest walking man I’d ever seen. His face was amazing, one that clearly spoke of Ancient Rome. I so wanted to capture those telltale facial features, but the hunched over body they belong to rushed by me. Clearly this fascinating man needed to be somewhere. Though I wanted to run after him and somehow discreetly take frontal pictures of him, I settled for this shot. It’s one I posted shortly after I joined the JPG community. Sadly, loads of graffiti adorn many walls of Roma. Chances are that form of expression even existed in Ancient Rome.
