Even in a big city like Rome, Italy, there are places tucked away on tiny streets that have a country residence look to them. This one was mere blocks from the Pantheon.

Just a retired old guy who loves looking for an eclectic mix of subjects to photograph, from people, to places, to concepts, and enjoys all aspects of the hunt, the find, and the shot, plus dabbling in the post production.

    It looks as if this structure shows at least two generations of brick and stucco, and that door is a ‘gem’! The topiary gives this a ‘classy’ look. Nice ‘catch’, Phil.

    all true and so common there in Italy. My guess is that all doors need to be custom made in that no two openings seem standard
