Trip to Rome, Italy!

I'm really behind on sharing these photos!  My awesome husband took me to Rome, Italy back in October 2017.  We went with my brother and brother-in-law.  We had an amazing trip!

I stepped out of my comfort zone and focused on street photography.  I photographed all the big landmarks and all the interesting stuff I was able to find on side streets and all over the city.  We hit all the tourists attractions like the Colosseum, Palatine Hill, the Roman Forum, the Spanish Steps, several fountains, and Vatican City.  We also just walked around Rome and did our best not to get hit and run over by the crazy moped drivers (and there were a lot!).

And the food!  Oh Italian food is spectacular!  I highly recommend going to Rome just to eat amazing food for a week straight!  We ate gelato everyday, and I have no regrets.

Enjoy a photographers paradise (or one of them)... Rome, Italy!

The flight to England and subsequent layover at Heathrow took it out of these three.

And the thunder rolls....

Could it rain anymore?!

It's been raining and raining, and raining some more around here lately.

Seriously, the ground is soaking wet from rain, and my backyard turns into a mini pond during every downpour.  On the up side, we aren't in a draught any more!  And it's a balmy 70 degrees instead of the average 90 degrees mid-May.

I had to run a quick errand on Saturday at the grocery store before having to pick up my oldest from a birthday party.  I had my camera with me when I saw the storm rolling in.  The cloud line and colors were amazing looking!  I grabbed my camera and took a few quick shots.

I don't shoot storms or street photographer often (although after these I might need to pull out my camera some more).  I thought I'd share some of the images of the storm rolling in.
