Well… I guess it isn’t so bad today

I often take my camera while on my appointed rounds and sometimes, just for kicks I snap a shot of something I have otherwise seen a zillion times.  All in all, Rome is a pretty photogenic place.  And to think… I have to walk around here all the time.

    All kinds of things are put out in the name of art – things that normally just might be scandalizing.

    Drop your pants in public? You’ll be hauled off to jail. (As well as you should!)

    And the scaffolding is STILL, yet STILL, attached to the front
    of S Agnese.
    A Special prize ought to be offered to anyone blogging a photo of this church without such impediment

    I’m not denying the sanctity of the eremetical life. Still, I don’t think it embodies the “essence” of Christianity. Would you maintain that one can be a Christian without being a hermit?
