It was the stormiest night of our stay in Rome, emerging seemingly from nowhere. Suffering from Seattle weather withdrawal, we ran around the abandoned Campo de Fiori in the pouring rain, then returned to try to capture the moment from the perch of our apartment window overlooking the square.

What I love about this photo is how completely uncharacteristic it is of Campo de Fiori. From the minute we woke up to the sound of the daily market, there was noise and movement, continuing into late hours of the night—alive with restaurants, music, and lingering conversations. In a surprising way, this stormy night was the most tranquil moment I experienced in the square, when the natural sounds of thunder and torrential rain silenced all human noise.
