Churches Galore

Posted on Jun 10, 2009 | 4 comments

One thing about Rome is that there are so many churches all over the city that one could spend years trying to see them all. Many aren’t even open except for mass because they don’t have personnel to have them open all day. This church (I don’t even know the name of it), is right off of via Nazionale and I’ve probably passed it a thousand times. For some reason last week I looked up and fell in love with the way the sky was so blue and the shadow was going across the building. I also loved the little cherub’s face used as a decorative element. This is something Borromini (my favorite Baroque architect) used to do quite often.


  1. It looks so dramatic in the blue sky.

  2. What a wonderful photo! Such beautiful architecture, you captured it so well. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Beautiful contrast of light and shade. The blue sky makes it into the perfect photo. Did you waut for the perfect dat to take this picture?

  4. Thank you Nobu and Multiple!

    Marianne – Nope, it happened by chance! But I also now understand what time of day the sky looks best, so when it's clear then it is blue like this.
