This intricate metal cherub adorned one of the internal doors in St Peter’s Basilica, Rome.
Another black and white picture from the Birds in Motion series, shot in St Peter’s Square, Rome.
There’s nothing like pictures of an Empire long gone to usher in the new year. This was taken at the entrance to the Roman Forum.
Since it’s the first day of the new year, I have a few photographic New Years Resolutions I thought I should share with you all. The general idea is that if I post them here, someone may hold me to account when I start to waver!
So, in no particular order:
- Visit at least one new country in 2011. I’ve been doing well on this one since 2007, so hopefully this year won’t break the trend!
- Work on at least one long-term photographic project over 2011. I’ve got a bunch of ideas, now I just need to put them into action… easier said than done.
- Post at least 5 days a week here on Journey Photographic. As part of the inspirational PostADay/PostAWeek community, I’ve committed to 5 posts a week. We’ll see how that goes.
Anyone else got any photographic New Years Resolutions they’d care to share?
We were on a walking tour of Rome, making our way through the old Jewish Ghetto, when I saw this man and dog staring intently into the distance. Every time I see this picture I wonder what caught their attention so completely.
We visited Pompeii on a brilliant, sunny day, with not a cloud in the sky. Every tour guide there was carrying an umbrella, doing double duty as a rallying point as well as a welcome source of shade.
One of the highlights of touring the Amalfi Coast is a chance to see a boats-eye view of the hideaways of the rich and famous. I’m not sure who owns this place, but I’d bet they are at least one of the two!
ETA: Apparently this is Atrani, a small village a few minutes from Amalfi itself. Thanks to Lisa for the heads up!
