This picture was taken on my walk from the Colosseum back to the hotel on the first night. It was more of a stairway connecting the main road with a small piazza (square). It was very dark and there were a couple of men playing instruments and drinking wine. When I had passed going up the stairs a couple of hours earlier I was a little nervous about passing them with all my camera gear, as at the time they weren’t busking, just drinking in a dark alleyway. Coming back I noticed this lamp, heard the music coming up the stairs and it seemed much more friendly and inviting. This was taken on my first day in the Italian capital.
