Roman Colour and Texture

To understand some of the reasons why Rome is unforgettable we last looked at pure Roman colour.
Now lets move up a layer to see how colour works with texture:
flowers and vegetation
framed in stone
framed in carved marble
colour, stone and cement
pure texture
random colours working well together
erosion adding a sense of age
erosion by water
colour in three dimensions
ancient elements
flat colour and stone
shadow
always erosion
raking side-light
the beauty of wear and tear
shadow and blazing sun
and at the end of every day a mellowing.

    1. So glad you are enjoying, Diane. Hadn't thought of "God is in the details" in relation to Rome. I could have used that! ;-)
