Main Street – Arielli, Italy

I took this picture standing at the top of the hill through the main street. This particular shot nearly got me killed but hey…we photographers suffer for our art. In Italy, drivers are not exactly the most cautious or….let’s say….very aware of the world around them.   People sped down this road like maniacs and there have been many times where you would look both ways before crossing the street, see no one for miles, and then have to sprint across the street because someone would come tearing down the road. This picture was taken while the watchful eye of my cousin would keep an eye out for cars. I nearly got taken out about four times before I snapped this. Someone up there loved me that day because mixed within the tons of blurs and shots of the sky was this little gem.
