Finally getting back to traveling after staying home in 2020-21 for Covid-19 avoidance.
We left Texas on Sept 28th to traveled to Italy, with plans to see Rome, Florence and Venice. Gave the new black & white camera a workout; learning to adjust the settings, finding the right combination for the right exposure. What follows are some of the images captured from the first walking 24 hours in Rome. AFTER resting for a day from the long flights and even longer walks thru airport terminals to get here. Enjoy...
Part of original city wall
Electric bicycles are a common sight here
Looks like a folding electric scooter.
Not sure how it can keep up with the fast moving traffic.
Elderly gent and umbrella casting a shadow
Cobblestone streets in the old quarters
An infamous tourist hot spot obviously,
looking down the Spanish Steps to the fountain below from the church
4 AM, looking up the Spanish Steps from the plaza fountain below...
where did all the tourists go??
Remembrance Wall in the Jewish Ghetto,
where in October 1943 citizens were rounded up,
railroaded to concentration camps in Germany.
Saturday night dining for the younger crowd
Romance in the shadows
Illuminated Roman columns
That concludes today's work. Walked more miles than thought I could.
Camera shutter finger is exhausted.
Going to bed.
