Vatican Poste

I’m cheating a bit today. I was out late having a few beers and playing ping-pong and darts (that’s right, ping-pong), so I didn’t have any time to process a new image. So, I’m posting an old shot from my trip to Italy in May of 2009.

This is probably my favourite shot from my brief time in Rome. The simple composition, the blast of colour, and the rich texture just really grab me. Happy Friday, everyone!

It’s probably strange how much I love this shot given how simple it is but the colors and textures are just awesome. This would be great hanging in my kitchen 😉

So simple yet so captivating! Well done, Heath. Also, beer and ping-pong is a winning combo!!

This really is a simple and clean shot. But, as you say, the colors and texture are just awesome. And simple is a good thing… reminds me of that old saying – KISS – keep it simple stupid 😛 Nice job, Heath!

Nothing wrong with diggin in the archives. Great shot, love the color and textures.

Beautiful, as always. What took you to Europe? Vacation or business?

I love the simplicity and the vibrancy of this shot, Heath! 🙂

Nice composition and texture; the indent in the wall works really well in creating the effect of this being a diptych.

I like this too – the Colours are great as is the texture on the wall. top shot

Thanks for sharing this image. I love when my photographer friends let me see parts of the world I haven’t visited. Thanks Heath!
