Beware the Roman in Red
Category: Spontaneous Moments
Photo and caption by Robert Tarabella
Only a few blocks from Rome's famous Spanish Steps, thousands stroll along ancient cobblestone roads — Romani and touristi alike. When I shot this photo, I was focused on the architecture and the lovely patina of the city. It wasn't until later that I noticed a mysterious man in red had become the focal point of the image. With his purposeful stride and menacing gaze, he seems oddly out of place and seemingly up to no good.
