Rome - life, art, stones - Travel Series



















Today in Rome, heading down
Michelangelo’s Spanish Steps,
under an unchanging moon,
I held on to the balustrade,
grateful for his giving me a hand.
All for love, I stumbled over the past
as if it were my own feet. Here, in my twenties,
I was lost in love and poetry. Along the Tiber,
I made up Cubist Shakespearean games.
I played with an ignorant mirror for an audience:
myself, embroiled with personage
from Antony and Cleopatra. Delusions of grandeur!
They were for a time my foul-weather friends—
as once I played with soldiers
on the mountainous countryside of a purple blanket.

I was there 3 years ago and I was so intent on getting the classical tourist shots. Like most other places I've been to, I need to go twice to look for different things. I like to look for repetition things like your St Peters chairs and columns

Vedi Roma e poi mori!
Foarte bine ai surprins frumusetea sculpturilor de acolo.Cred ca e un oras suprainbcarcat de istorie si cultura.

Cu toate ca in cazul tau, cuvintele sunt de prisos, am sa incerc cateva ...

8827 - este favorita seriei - astept norii din Corfu ;)

8822 - nu ai cumva si varianta privita din unghiul opus? :D

8652 - tocmai am citit un articol pe descopera.ro. Se pare ca romanii inainte de a incalta sandalele isi puneau si ciorapii; desi in toate sculpturile si basoreliefurile nu se "intrevede" asa ceva.

8761 - nu e periculos sa te avanti asa in inaltimi... chiar daca te numesti "wind"?


PS: ar trebui sa iti optimizezi fotografiile pentru cautare. E pacat sa nu beneficieze si altii de ele.
