The Angel at Santi Vincenzo e Anastasio
















Another Sunday
Another Angel


Hi Everyone.. I hadn't planned on posting another Angel yet.. but haven't had time to prepare anything else.. So  for a little Sunday entertainment, here is an Angel that forms part of a 'Madonella' [Little Madonnas]   near the Trevi Fountain. These 'Little Madonnas' can be found all over Rome, each unique and sweet in their own way... I was so besotted by them I attempted to photograph each and everyone... Perhaps this shot is not the best example to introduce these as you can't actually see the Madonna, but I like the way the Angel seems to be protecting the church..  I hope he protects you also, and fills your dreams with sweet thoughts.





Have A Wonderful Weekend

I'll Be Back Soon

you take such beautiful photos. Now I am longing to go back to Rome.

Julie, You did it again. And this one is a wonder! I love this Angel. No nonsense, striding toward the door, the next mission, robes caught in the whirlwind of motion, wings of ample weight and scuffed and battered from the many calls of duty. No time to clean up. Marching on. Face obscured. Totally not interested in a photo opportunity! Perfect!

Oh Julie, post as many angel statues as you wish. PLEASE. They are my most loved and your magical way of photographing them sends me to the moon.

Did you get pinched yet???
I got my first pinch at the Trevi fountain. There is a fantastic famous restaurant there , they wouldn't let me in because I was alone. I was really ticked off about that.. yvonne

Looks like you get yourself into some funny positions to take these shots Julie - but we so appreciate the effort!! :) Just loved your shots of the Vatican, wasn't the light amazing when you were in Rome.

Hope all is well with you

gorgeous pics!!

Intriguing to see an angel from behind rather than the usual focus on the serenity of facial expression. I like how the detailing of the sculpture is echoed in that of the columns.

Life love, clutter and other beautiful things. said...

Genius!!!!

Yes

You are.

I love love the perspective xox
