Urbs

Made it here in one piece. Still sort of jetlagged, and a bit overwhelmed. But boy-oh-boy does it feel good to be here... There will be a lot of this in store for me for the next three months:


Bust of a man. 110-120 CE, Ostia.
Museo Nazionale Romano (Terme di Diocleziano).


And a lot of other cool stuff, too. Should get a lot of work done. So, if I start posting here every other day, I'm most likely slagging off, and should be told off immediately. (Please do. I mean it.)


Isn't this is just the cutest little thing? It lives on a small alley on the way to the supermarket.

The rest of this stuff is just me testing out all the nifty things I can do with my new cam. (We had margaritas on Friday at Margaritas.)

It has a little friend! This is also from back home (obviously).

And finally I can achieve this nice front-in-focus-backround-nicely-blurred effect. Whoppee!

A colleague gave me an Amaryllis bulb for Christmas. It grew up quickly and looked gorgeous for a few days. Such is life.

Kuurankukkasia. Wonder what that'd be English. Anyone?
