Piazza Carlo Alberto, Cagliari, Sardinia

I saw this woman looking out of the window and wondered for a minute or two if I should try to take her photograph. The building reminded me a lot of the typical Italian urban photography I have seen online. The plaster on the walls looks as if it has been peeling away over decades, and nobody is in a hurry to fix it. This makes for very interesting photography. Urban pictures like the one above really come to life (literally) with the inclusion of the person. It gives scale and makes you wonder what this woman is doing there? Is it her home, or is she a tourist? Maybe she was born in that room? Nobody knows, all we can do is speculate…
