Independent woman

The Duomo in Siena, Italy is a beautiful building. At midday, it will always be surrounded with hordes of tourists and school kids. But early in the morning, one can almost have the surrounding plaza to yourself. This morning as I walked through the plaza, a young woman in a bright orange dress was sitting on a bench next to the Duomo, absorbed in her phone, waiting perhaps for a friend to arrive. The contrast of the dress with the lovely stonework in early light was wonderful. (photo: @PColeman)
