One of the best things I did during the recent holidays was go on a walk with the fellow blogger Flavia, a born Roman. Our target was Ostiense for its street art but doors are always here somewhere.
We were supposed to meet once before but a terrific downpour forced us to postpone. Better this way, because now that we did meet, a couple of days after Christmas, the day was just perfect for a stroll.
Amore, bestia and I met Flavia at the beautiful Ostiense station with the pyramid and we walked for two hours in a circle until the happy end – gelato. I’m especially glad that she decided to join us despite a stomach bug that she’d caught. Thank you!
I will do a post with more photos of various street art that we found another time, today some of the encountered doors. It’s so obvious that this time I was busy chatting and laughing with our new friend and didn’t pay much attention to technical aspects. It was worth it though.
As Flavia was leaving for her train, I gave her bestia’s leash to hold and said in joke: “Ciao!” and walked away with amore. Bestia gave us one, only one! look as if to say: Okay then, if this is what you wish, and turned to leave with Flavia towards the train most happily, even though usually he is not a fan of trains. When I reclaimed him and Flavia left, he looked after her in serious longing. No worries, bestia, we will certainly meet again.
Today I’m trying a different layout because some of these photos are far from sharp. I’m afraid my automatic focus is going to the dogs. It’s high time I get a new camera and this is something I’d like to talk to you all. Soon I’ll do a post about this and ask for your suggestions on which camera to get for my big birthday in May.
You can click on a photo to see them larger in a colourful horizontal gallery but as usually the captions are not visible there, so I ask you to read first and watch later. Hard to have everything in life, ey?
I wish you all a happy door year!
