2015.10.08.4847 B&W Colosseum

“The streets of Rome are filled with rubble; ancient footprints are everywhere. You could almost thing that you’re seein’ double on a cold. dark night on the Spanish Stairs. Got to hurry back home to my hotel room, where I’ve got me  date with Botticelli’s neice; she promised she’d be there with me when I paint my masterpiece. Oh the hours we’d spend inside the Colosseum, dodging lions and wasting time. Oh those mighty kings of the jungle, I can hardly stand to see ’em; yes, it sure has been a long, hard climb.” Bob Dylan.

“As long as the Colosseum stands, so shall Rome; when the Colosseum falls, Rome shall fall; when Rome falls, so falls the world.” St. Bede the Venerable.
