Breathe before it is gone.

Photography 101: Day Eleven: A Pop of Color

“Medieval” was the way Civita, located  in the Province of Viterbo, was described to me. I confess to having to look up exactly what that meant. It was the time between the 5th century fall of the Roman Empire in the west, and the fall of Constantinople in 1453.

By the time I had walked up the long narrow steep causeway, and  through the arched tunnel,  stone warnings to invaders overhead, far from the lavish art and architecture of Renaissance Italy I was enraptured by,  I no longer needed the dictionary because I was there: Medieval.

We must get up and take that in,

that wind that lets us live

Breathe before it’s gone.

  1. I could spend hours looking at all your incredible photos. They have left an ache in my soul, I so hope to be able to see first hand what you have experienced.

      1. But even if it seemed impossible, a less experienced Photographer, not taking one awesome picture after the other (like you definitely show on your blog) might have made it possible 😉
        I love towns like this… Maybe because there are clearly less of those typical tourists- like us Germans (you’ll notice a German tourist just by looks if you are a bit more seasoned 😉 ) and it all seems so quiet and peaceful… We need more places like this one…
