The Eternal City - Being a morning person, after coffee has been fully consumed of course, waking up early to get the best of the morning light is always a treat for me. There is something very peaceful about the stillness and quiet of the city, just before people start making their way to work or to their local cafe. In Rome, the smell of freshly baked bread and pastries filtered through the air as I captured it's beauty bathed in the soft morning glow.
My experience in Rome was filled with many "something caught my eye" moments. Luring me into side streets and open doorways. There is beauty everywhere, but only when I allowed myself to slow down and wander did I stumble upon the little hidden corners and interiors of this historical city.
