As I am fortunate enough to have been to Rome a few times over the years, I was happy to spend the majority of my most recent visit simply wandering the city without any particular plans. I zig-zagged through the maze of streets largely guided by whatever looked even remotely photogenic (which in Rome, is kind of a lot, so I was all over the place!), and possibly also gelato. It was a pretty wonderful way to spend a few days, and it made my heart happy :)
Needless to say, my next few posts will probably be a random assortment of the many, many photos that I took whilst wandering about ...
I love the Piazza del Campidoglio - big thumbs up to Michelangelo, hehe.
This is the Roman Cat Sanctuary, which is a volunteer-run, no-kill cat shelter located in the ruins of Torre Argentina. Having a Fur Kid of my own (who I was really missing!) and being an animal lover in general, I think that initiatives like these are so great. I spent a little time fuzzball-spotting (even found the Fur Kid's Roman doppelgänger [who, like the Fur Kid, was also extremely unco-operative in having his/her photo taken]) and patting/hanging out with my scruffy little buddy pictured two photos below :)
Crumbling walls + vines = photography love!
