It was our third and last day in Rome. I wanted to learn more, explore deeper, and see a few historic places we had missed earlier. I pushed myself to the limits. Roshan, on the other hand, was taking it easy and preferred to sleep in.

Rome is a huge city. We needed more than just a few days to really see it. The unseasonably cold weather also tempted us to stay inside longer. After trying to convince Roshan to get in the streets of Rome before they got too crowded, I slammed the door and ran outside. It was time to explore Rome and meet its people by myself.

After this picture, I couldn’t resist the temptation and took a few more shots of the strangers I stumbled upon while exploring Rome.

Some of these photos were unintentional as it was almost impossible to shoot in such a big city without capturing random passerby. Once I started edited my photos from Rome, I decided not to be bothered by removing all these photobombers, but combine them in one short photo gallery I called People I Met in the Streets of Rome.
