Repost: Piazza Navona, Rome

Picture of a smoking man selling art in Piazza Navona, Rome, Italy

Art Markets, Piazza Navona, Rome

Repost time!  Looking at this picture brings back so many memories of Rome – not just of wandering the art market of Piazza Navona, but also of the very different attitude towards smoking in Europe compared to Australia.  A small thing, but it’s the little differences that linger.

Wedding Party and Tourists, Piazza del Campidoglio, Rome

Time for another one from the archives… this picture of a wedding party in the Piazza del Campidoglio is another of my favourites.  Graphically, I love the way all the elements come together so symmetrically, but it also sums up one of my abiding impressions of Europe –  the occasionally tense juxtaposition of local people trying to live their lives, while throngs of tourists swirl around them.

Child, Vatican Museums, Rome

A child taking a picture somewhere deep in the halls of the Vatican Museums. Come to think of it, I’m fairly certain this picture was taken in the Gallery of Tapestries, a long hall displaying a collection of 15th and 17th century tapestries.

Yes, it’s blurry. No, I don’t care!
