To Rome With Love – I remember watching this delightful Woody Allen film a few days before I left for Italy and I couldn’t get over how impossibly beautiful the city looked. Or for that matter in Eat, Pray, Love – I stopped watching after the ‘eat’ part! Or in its black & white glory in Fellini’s La Dolce Vita and overshadowing the combined beauty of Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck in Roman Holiday. Surely a place cannot be that beautiful, I thought - until I got there.
So when the daily prompt for BootsnAll’s 30 Days of Indie Travel Art Project threw up ‘poetry’, I thought no place other than Rome could do ‘poetic justice’. However, poetry is not quite my strong suit so I’m going to attempt couple of haikus for this photographic jaunt through Rome. I hope it makes you yearn to visit the eternal city. I know I will be going back; after all I did toss a coin into the Trevi Fountain!
