Italian Mamma

I saw this woman looking out the window. She was talking to some friends across the way. I tried to take the photograph without her knowing, but it doesn’t look like I was very successful. She appears to be posing for me with that big smile.

When I first started going to Italy I couldn’t get over all the old woman looking out their windows. Everywhere I went I saw them leaning out yelling to someone or more frequently just staring off at a sunset or kids playing soccer. There is something very comforting about it as if an Italian Mamma is kinda watching over everything
