Postcard from Rome

This is the view of Piazza di Spagna, taken from the Spanish Steps. It was around 7:00 PM and was beginning to drizzle. A minute or two later, the piazza became empty because everyone ran for cover, including me.

Great picture, keep the photos coming.
I may not be visiting Rome in person this year, but I can enjoy the city through your camera lens!

Can I make a request? Photos of old beautiful buildings please? Surely there must be 1 or 2 in Rome ;D

Ming, I've loved going along on your journey. I was in Rome and Florence after college (many years ago) and some time hope to return. Your photos are just outstanding-real postcards.

Thanks so much for sharing even with tech challenges.

Safe travels home tomorrow.
