We didn't do too much in Rome today. We tried to go see the Trevi Fountain, but it was dry and under restoration. In the afternoon, I met up with the beautiful Barbara to do a photo shoot at the Villa Cellimontana. She is an American Tribal Style belly dancer here in Rome, with grace and a kind spirit. I am so grateful to have this opportunity to photograph a dancer on the other side of the world! Truly a dream fulfilled! #bellydance #ats #tribalstyle #italy #vacation #rome #bellydancer #travel

Sadly, it's our last night in Italy. Before its end, I challenged myself to take a night photo of the Colosseum. It's hard to get a good vantage point since it is always surrounded by people, and half of it is currently covered in scaffolding for restoration. I managed to catch this one during Blue Hour, and although it's not ideal, it sums up a Rome that I will remember–a bustling contradiction of the modern and the ancient–its people and lights reflected on the rain-slicked streets. What a beautiful place! #rome #italy #colosseum #vacation #travel #nightphotography #italia
