ABC Wednesday—C is for "cellist"


This one is Fabio Cavaggion.  He had a very
successful career playing in orchestras,
but decided that he could reach more people
with his music by playing in the street.
I took this shot at the same spot as the one I
posted yesterday—but this was much
later in the day and all those folks are on a 
looong line to get into the Pantheon.

getting an early start


This horse and driver were ready for
all the tourists who will show
up here—but at not quite 8 a.m., they
weren't yet out and about.

Blue Monday


Better late than never, I suppose. Found myself
someplace yesterday where I didn't
expect to be—and unable to post to this blog
with just my iPad.  Now I'm at work
with a limited supply of photos, but here's
an image from last year's trip to
the Arctic, where the blues look blue but
also the whites do too.

inSPIREd Sunday


Here's a doorway detail of a little
off-the-beaten-track church,
San Crisogono, which is in Trastevere.
It was built in the 4th century,
rebuilt in the 12th, and finally again
in the early 1600s.

The Weekend in Black and White


Il barbiere di . . . no, not Seville—Roma.
Do you recognize this spot
from a certain Julia Roberts movie?

Lunch in Trastevere


This is my pal Blanche Dubois (no, not
that one—her namesake).
Blanche loves to travel with me
and has been to the opera in Budapest
and hiking in the Arctic.
And this year she went to Rome—twice!

Thursday Challenge—"sun" #2


This was taken at the same spot as last
week's Thursday Challenge
sunset, but three minutes earlier.
