Ceilings in Roman churches reminded me of those posters your dentist puts up so you have something to look at while they scrape away at your gums. I can totally picture this guy saying, “Look, Ma – no cavities!” Shot on iPhone 8.
We wandered through so many random churches with so many sculpted ceilings, I’m not even going to try to remember where this was taken. I became minorly obsessed with taking shots of these moldings that descend down from the ceiling art, like a needless staircase. Plus a bit of asymmetrical symmetry, because my photography goesContinue reading “Unnecessary Steps (Rome, Italy)”

I love this photo, because it could have been taken anywhere, but it wasn’t. It was taken in Rome. A reminder that wherever you go, there you are. Or something. Also, a bonus shutter shot, because they’re cool. Again, could be anywhere — but it wasn’t. Photos shot on iPhone 8, black and white filter.
Welcome to our view pretty much every day we were in Rome. After my regular morning quest for cappuccinos, I’d come back to the apartment to fetch my traveling companion, and we’d head out. A mere five minute stroll along a busy street, passing by banks, restaurants, pharmacies, shops, then bam, ruins! And not justContinue reading “And Then There Were Cats (Rome, Italy)”
