Spotted this guy from where I sat on the Spanish Steps in Roma. I'm most attracted to the hint of his reflection in the window and the red light. Fred thinks the light is part of an alarm system. Makes sense to me, considering the expensive neighborhood this is in.

    A fine Roman moment, nicely captured. His expression is to "typical" that you might make this a vertical shot, cropping a bit from the bottom and a lot from both sides.
