Here's the next batch of photos from the Eternal City. Just a few things I want to say first: back then I used to shoot in JPEG, so the added grain actually does me a favor, as it gives texture to the images. The colors are delicious - it rained a lot during our vacation, but the grey skies made everything stand out better. I like the high contrast and the subdued highlights, and it was a real treat to revisit Rome again in such detail. I miss Europe terribly, though I carry my experiences there with me always, which helps me to put the life here in a better perspective.
Also, just look at me - 20 pounds (at least) lighter, a smoker, and I seem to find cats everywhere I go. Of course, Rome is literally infested with cats.
