Angels Fortress in Rome

We went down to the riverside during the day, to shoot the Castel Sant'Angelo from below.

We had the feeling, that it was probably not the safest place in Rome after dark. And yet, we had seen many night shots from down there.

We decided to take the Blue Hour up around the Vatican, and then work our way down here to Castel Sant'Angelo, and take the late blue hour or the first of the night if we felt safe.

By the time we got down to the stairs leading to the riverside, a few people hung around in the area. I started the descent of the stairs, looking carefully around.

I didn't get more than 10 steps down, and the stairs were splashed in what looked exactly like fresh blood, and I turned around. Even if I wanted a photo from down there, I didn't want it that bad.
