Photos of Rome

Christine is a great photographer and a valued member of our Facebook community. She has shared some gorgeous photos of Rome with us and a lovely story about her time in Rome too. I'll let Christine take it from here...

"Our trip to Rome has a lovely story as for the last 20 years I have only ever wanted to wake up in Rome on my 40th birthday !! And guess what... I did! Thanks to my lovely husband who made it come true.

I'm a married mum of two with a huge passion for photography, a hobby around my full time job. We live in Newport South Wales UK, we spend our summers surfing and going to VW rally's in our camper van.

During our flight to Rome a very nice Italian man offered us a lift from the airport Into Rome - to the colosseum; what a wonderful offer which we accepted. Thank you Andrea who ever you are and the 1st November was my 40th birthday yaaaay and I was in Rome.

I have loads of photos which capture Rome as best I could, not only for the main history but the real Rome that sometimes people don't 't see or are blind to. The homeless man on the bridge was a very powerful part of our trip !! All saints day, bridge of angels and of course  I was blown away. I have a lot of pics of homeless,  food and just the essence and history of Rome.

Rome did not disappoint us !!! we even got to see the Pope at  the Vatican on Sunday too. We cannot wait to return  

I love love love Italy !!!!!

My photography is just a hobby but a massive part of my everyday life. My camera is nearly always with me much to my husbands dismay lol."
