The colors of Rome


We spent two beautiful weeks in Rome. I have many photos to share, but there are so many it's hard to choose what to put up. I have some of the standard photos of churches and monuments. But for now, here are photos that show COLOR which is my best memory of the trip.

The gelato stand

That incredible orange and yellow - two of my favorites!

The graffiti!

Some metal doors with more of that beautiful reddish orange.

This is a color I can't quite identify - made of pink red orange and magic I think.

The green, yellow and soft blue on the train were great together.

Archeological red. Soft and worn over time.

This blue red and yellow combo was exciting.

I want to paint my own house this color. If only I had the Mediterranean light to go with it.

Love this pink and red together.

The softest pink yellow and blue combo.

Glorious blue-purple morning glories in an old water aquaduct.
