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.
The morning wind spreads it’s fresh smell
We must get up and take that in,
that wind that lets us live
Breathe before it’s gone.
