Bernini Exquisiteness, Rome

Bernini Exquisiteness, Rome, originally uploaded by - di.

This is without any photoshop light adjustment ... without photoshop at all.

This is the magic of Rome!

Late afternoon yesterday, walking past Castel Sant' Angelo from photographing the Vatican and the light changed, the sky darkened but the sun shone on the Bernini angels on the bridge called the Bridge of Angels ... the bridge that crosses the River Tiber and leads you to Hadrian's Tomb.

The new Canon camera is a dream but I am finally learning the technicalities of everything and voila, I am so pleased with this, even though it's more about Rome.

This is gorgeous, and the Bernini's were my favorite art in a city full of exquisite art. Get thee to Villa Borgheses...

Grazie, Tara :) I'm loving it here and it's so warm after a long cold Belgian winter xo

The villa, hmmm tomorrow? Ms V. I'm photographing an Ides of March re-enactment and I had expected to see 'the villa' today. I guess almost everything is going to be closed on Monday. Hmmm, I'll have to return ;)
