Of all the photographs I snapped in Italy during my studying abroad days of yore, this is among my very favorite. I totally remember thinking I just had to get a shot of that turban. It wasn't until much later that I noticed the beautiful baublely pearls peeking out from under her coat. Lustrous, aren't they?! I love too how you can almost imagine what she looks like, just from the faces of her (presumable) husband and daughter in the background.
