  • Queued On An Evening In Roma Analysis

    With architecture so ethereal here was a city that stood the test of time; a symbol of purity in white. A city looked over by Michelangelo’s angels. An eerie luminescence hovers over the city past sun down. The alleyways were lit by just a lantern or two, and the glow of the autumn leaves as they reflected the dying light of a done day.
