Montecitorio

Palazzo Montecitorio and Obelisk, Rome

Very nice! I love the bells in the background and the clock, which, as would be expected features Roman numerals!

The obelisk I know nothing about...an ancient totem pole it would seem...

Lovely zoom (I think) juxtaposing these beautiful elements.

Hello, I am new to your site and got here via andother blogger that you left a comment on. I must say your pictures have captured my interest...so much so, that I have gone back through all you photo's and there are so many that are just breathtaking, like "Trafalgar" and "In Bruges". I love how you capture not only the beauty but real life like the little boy who's diaper is showing at the fountain "Square Tandou". Looking at the picture as posted and clicking on it to see the real thing is like two different worlds..."Wave Swinger" is a good example. I have enjoyed learning things about places I have never been and probably will never go like "Saint George West Bank". I have no idea how you capture such beauty like "Johannes Church" and was fasinated at the "Woman in Blue". Sorry this comment is so long.... I will be a frequent visitor:)
