Memories of Rome 2011

With the new year looming ahead in just a few days and the hustle and bustle of the holiday season consuming much of our energy and time, I thought I’d share a few more of my favourite images from my trip to Rome this year.  As the weather gets colder, it’s nice to remember the 30+ degree days, the breathtaking churches, the cold gelato and the warm cappuccino!

The new year brings with it aspirations of change, renewal and gratefulness and so I’d like to thank you for your continued support and interest and I wish you joy, peace and love in the coming year.  Cheers to you with the perfect cup of cappuccino!

    Amazing photos. They take me back to my days studying abroad in Rome. I can almost taste the gelato. It was a wonderful experience and I can’t wait to go back!

    Anita these are some of the most pictures of Rome that I’ve ever seen, gave me goosebumps just remembering…. You have to submit these somewhere for publication they are stunning…. Or have some large poster boards made…. I would buy!
    Hope you are all well! Merry Christmas!

      Thank you so much for your nice compliments. At night the Trevi Fountain is particularly spectacular – and there are no crowds to fight either!

    Wow! Your pictures are so beautiful =] Do you have any tips? I’m trying to learn to take better pictures ❤

      Thank you so much for the nice compliments! If you have a look at our blog, there are a few posts related to taking better photos. Understanding how your camera works is a good start, and then paying attention to light is another. Do you shoot mostly people or landscapes? Have a read, and then if you have specific questions I’d be happy to help!
