Rome, May 2009

After a week in Rome I've been thinking about trying to describe the city, and coming up empty. Not that there's nothing to describe, but too much. Too much history, food, cars, tourists, paintings, scooters, sculpture, churches, limoncello, gelato ... Look at the pictures. Enjoy.

I've increased the maximum size on the images from 900x700 on previous trips to 1000x800, I hope this doesn't cause anyone serious problems (sorry netbook users). If you want to see the whole image but can't without scrolling about, right-click on the image and choose "View Image" (maybe "View Picture" or similar in IE or others): most browsers will auto-scale a big image to fit the available screen space.

My division of images, moving some off to a "Sculptures" page, may seem entirely arbitrary: it's based mostly on whether I was there to see just the sculpture - my own special brand of logic. And I should also perhaps apologize for the abundance of church ceilings ... what can I say, I loved them.
