The Eternal City

You may be wondering (then again, you may not be) why Žiga hasn't posted anything in days. This is because he is in Rome - one of the most incredible places I've ever been to. I don't really have many photos from the week I spent there last year (mostly since my dad had already photographed most of the standard landmarks), but of all of the photos, this is probably my favourite. Yes, it's simple, yes, there's nothing technically special about it.

Having said that though, just seeing this photo brings back memories of the Colle Palatino in spring, with trees and flowers blooming like crazy, and the sign itself promising views of the Domus Augustana and the Circo Massimo (along with what I am guessing is the Stadium of Domitian?). Just looking at this, I can smell the flowers and feel the warm breeze...

Oh, hell. I really should get back to Rome one of these days.


  1. wooooow this one is awesome, I love the soft pink colour

  2. Thanks, weird how my photos of things like the Colosseum are nothing special, and this one is just so charming. It suggests warmth, springtime, and Rome itself without being too obvious :)

  3. I thought it was black and white at first ... now you are talking about colors but I still can't see them. :(

  4. Yes, half-color blind :(

    The fuzz on the branches is pink...
