A way of life

Riomaggiore, Italy

This photo was taken by Paul Ahnn in Riomaggiore, Italy:

“What motivated me to take this photo was the colors and the lifestyle. The first thing you notice are the colors of the houses – just amazing. Also, you can notice people just chilling on the rocks and having a good time, an ambiance I wanted to capture to express how I felt while I was over there.

I hope to convey a sense of relaxation for anyone that sees the photo – I hope that they can take a moment of time just to forget about whatever is stressing them and pretend that they are one of those people in the picture, laying on a rock surrounded by good food, good people, and a beautiful day.”

This photo is a winner of IPE photo contest.
