The Pantheon is a memorable building, whatever the circumstances of finding oneself there, but this day was particularly notable. Right after I took these pictures I turned and came face-to-face with a Dutchman, a stranger until the day before, when I’d spent an hour chatting with him over lunch in a restaurant in Trastevere we both chanced to be in. We found, in the course of the conversation, we had mutual close friends in Amsterdam. So running into him twice in 2 days, by sheer coincidence, in 2 disparate locations was...well, you can imagine. We just sat on a wall beside this beautiful building and quietly enjoyed watching the crowd together.
