Europe in fifteen photos

I shot a lot of photos in Europe. The collection is available at http://www.flickr.com/photos/domesticat/collections/72157631548498001/ and is broken down by city and by theme, but since I’ve been asked a few times, I thought I’d pick just a few photos to tell the overarching story.

This was my favorite shot of the day, and one of the hardest to get right. There were visual distractions all around her, and she could only be shot from one angle. Took me a few tries to get it right.
