I went to Italy last October for a tour of the coastal Amalfi Coast. This was my first time in Italy and knew I had to also see Rome. So I flew in and out of Rome and spent a couple of days there before and after the tour. This self portrait is based on a brief stop I made after I left the Colosseum – my first day in Rome. I enjoyed the scenic walk of continuous architecture and unique looking trees as I searched for the perfect plate of pasta nearby.
