Rome is a bit too broad term for what I’m about to show: Tiburtina station and its immediate surroundings as viewed one October day two years ago.
When I saw Amy’s theme old and new for this week’s Lens-Artists photo challenge, my first thought went to the wall spotted just opposite the Tiburtina station the (only) time I went to Slovenia from Rome by bus, FlixBus to be exact.
They depart from the vicinity of this train station, Rome’s second largest after the Termini. It is quite peculiar. Only now I spot the sign “Designed with L<3 in Denmark” in one of its windows. Really? A quick online search yielded nothing, but now it suddenly seems very Scandinavian to me.
I had some time to kill so I pulled my suitcase along a couple of streets and wasn’t sorry. Have a look at how they dropped this modern building into the surrounding Rome.
I was travelling all alone after quite a while and you know how suddenly there is so much to tell and show to another and there is nobody there? It wasn’t but now it is. Welcome. The photos are in the same order as taken.
