    One of my favourite movies… Italian we call it Vacanze Romane …….no matter where I am, I always take a copy of this film with me to remind me of home…….and your photo here has done just that……it has taken me straight to Rome!! Technically wonderful in composition and framing…..I think it works so well in b/w………and artistically, this really captures the essence of my home! Well done! :))

  • Grazie mille Luisa, i’m so pleased you like it
