The Vatican is such a prominent part of the Roman landscape that it can be seen no matter which side of the Tiber River you stand. As I edited photos from Rome, I noticed several themes and this week it’s the Vatican and its surroundings. Hope you enjoy it, and that you all have a wonderful Christmas and Chanukkah!

What is more beautiful and simple as the man praying by the columns? Despite the grandeur of the Church and majesty of the pieces of art, nothing is more loved than the simple man praying with God. Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas Michael, it had occurred to me to edit this entire project down to that one photograph. It is by far my favorite of the lot.
Love these! You captured the spirit of St. Peters and Rome beautifully. Merry Christmas!
Thanks Lynda! Merry Christmas!
The photo of the man praying is beautiful. I also love the last shot. It takes real talent to get amazing night shots! I love your photography.
Thanks thirdeyemom, I appreciate that, and I hope you have some incredible adventures in 2015!
Reblogged this on Tiffani Leon's site "In Search of Lost …".
You have a way of capturing moments that feels like I was there see what you were seeing.
Hey, thanks. I’m glad that it conveys that sense, I’m always hoping to bring people along.
