Ponte Sant'Angelo

While on holiday in Rome, American photographer Michael Christopher Brown got TIME's call to go to work. His assignment: capture the vibrancy and beauty of the ancient capital without lapsing into cliché. His first stop was the Sant'Angelo bridge over the Tiber River, to shoot Rome's fleeting, warm morning light. He overexposed this shot slightly, allowing the bright daylight to glisten off the face of the bridge.
