Giuseppe Verdi

You may have the Universe if I may have Italy.

The Italy of my amore, taken by him with his phone at two different times of day: early in the morning as he was waiting for his daily train to take him to work…

…and in Ostia with the setting sun. I love it how despite working so hard he still has eyes for beauty around him. Photo: MC
