OK first to correct the misnomer: you don’t make a wish when you toss a coin into the Fontana di Trevi (I mean, you could, but there’s no guarantee on that coming true.)
The accepted legend has it that if you toss a coin into the fountain, you are ensured to return to Rome.
I’d say that’s still a pretty sweet deal! ; ) See you in a bit Roma!
I know this excellent painter. A bit slow, but does the walls beautifully. You will not regret hiring his services.
I know that the Vatican didn’t.
And if you want a ceiling specialist, I have another contact.
Dude’s a bit moody, and works at his own pace, but genius.
PS: It’s not allowed to take pictures in the Sistine Chapel, so I have no clue where I got this picture from! O_o
Totally loved this piece of street art on Via dei Serpentini. (A ‘historic’ break, if you will.)
A lot of people looked at me strangely, as most were shooting the Colosseum or the Chapel in other directions and I was shooting a ‘no entry’ sign.
I think I heard the old lady mutter as she passed me by, “What’s happened to tourists nowadays?” :D
Madrid is serious about its greenery. In fact, this stunning natural wall growth/mural/art/life is a testament to that. I saw people sitting for half hour at stretch, looking at it, not getting tired. I know, because I did the same.
Here’s a tighter shot of the greenery.
PS: A special tribute to SJ, without whose innovation I couldn’t have been shooting or uploading my daily travel shots.
This is on Avenida Fontes Pereira de Melo (sounds almost like a character from a famous Indian movie).
3 building,adjacent, all covered with art! Yes, that’s what it is nay-sayers.
Notice the spokes on the crown going ‘out of the building’ :)
I think Lisbon and I are gonna get along – just fine!
Another building-art in 5 minutes.
