Squeezing in St. Peter’s

When you can’t get back far enough to capture what you want, you end up 10 paces down an alley wishing the buildings on either side would go away. Then, after you frame up the church just so and click the shutter button for three long exposures, you hear voices. They fall down from the open windows above and kind of echo off the walls and make you wish you could have that in the photo, too. So you’re glad the walls are there in the end. And no, I’m not stupid enough to venture down an alley with nobody around. There were tons of people in the street. They just disappear when you make the exposure long enough.
