I quietly worked myself into a position behind these fun-loving guys who. as you might suspect, were not exactly awed by the Palazzo Vecchio. They were sitting a few feet away from where we would begin our 416 step trek to the top of the tower, feverishly doing "incredibly important things" on their phones. I then walked around in front of them and engaged them. I told them I had a cool image of them from behind, all on their phones and asked them to give me a "pretend like you're having the best time of your life" pose. No hesitation.
