150!! YAY!!

I've just got back from Rome 2 weeks ago and I have been waiting to see if some of my images would be accepted.I traveled with my husband and 10 month old son, who absolutely loved Rome, but time was difficult to sit still and snap as much as I can and we were only there for 4 days.Rome is a fantastic place - full of life and art and history - it's impossible to get bored. even by sitting in a piazza having a delicious cake and coffee or relaxing with a bottle of wine or just walking around... continue reading
