All photos in this post were taken this winter in the space of a few streets in Rome’s Monteverde district, the ones with the bluest sky this weekend.
True, it was cold, most of the time it was raining, but still, I had no excuse not go Roming a bit further into the city. But I didn’t go, either to Eately in Ostiense – quite close – where there was a chocolate festival with free tastings, or to any of the museums that are free every first Sunday in the month. And now I feel the quilt (=guilt) of a lost opportunity.
Ah well, I better exhale and let it out. That’s how it is if you return monthly and you know that there will be other weekends, warmer, drier, more right.
Truth be told, no matter how often I roam the same streets and nooks walking the dog, for almost five years now, I still find new doors, some even quite exceptional, such as the ones in the last three photos.
Yes, they were taken this weekend too, and I’ve never seen these doors before. Oh, wrong – I saw the one with the circle once but it was dark, I didn’t have my camera and I forgot where it was exactly. I knew it would resurface sooner or later, and now it has.
No matter how my initial idea was to post just these two doors today, I found a bunch of other unposted ones (photos, that it, a door or two you might have seen already), and then I added some balconies, and a car reflection, and here are the usual 20 photos again, or so. Blimey.
