First day on foot in Rome

20120831-021708.jpg

Above is my husband outside our hotel. Hotel Teatro di Pompeo. It’s a historic sight itself.

Hoping to make at least a semi coherent post. Our yesterday has become today without the sleep wake cycle to keep the beginnings and endings clear.

We spent the day touring Rome on foot.

There is so much to absorb here. My senses are overwhelmed. As we walk, I keep thinking I smell doughnuts, must be all the pasticcerias. Taking photos can't begin to capture all I'm seeing, but I try.

Below are are a few photos of highlights; lunch at Campo di Flori, Piazza Navona, The Pantheon, and Fontana di Trevi. I've been having some technical difficulties so hopefully they will appear in order.

About Babs

I'm a narrative sculptor navigating her way through the ever-changing currents in what feels like an art ocean. Whether appreciating the calm rhythm of calls for art and exhibiting, or waiting to catch a big wave of inspiration to take me to the top. I just love being in the water. Formerly a pickle packer, theater major, crisis counselor and occupational therapist with a BA in Communications and a BS in Occupational Therapy, only to discover I've always been an artist. My work grows from a strong connection to people and a passion for discovering the beauty in ordinary things. I sculpt figuratively in clay, utilizing the female form and women’s themes. Frequently my inspiration is drawn from childhood memories and my own short poems. Like each of us as humans every work is uniquely influenced by the past and present and has a narrative.

  1. This brings back beautiful memories for David and I – we also ate outdoors in Piazza Navona on our first day in Rome!

  2. Ah, bella Roma! Churches, pasta, ruins, stone streets, beautiful fountains! Great photos, Barb!
