    just amazed Jann,but my favourite is “A symphony of sandstone”.Following your web is a great pleasure for me!

  • These images with their soft depth of field and focus on stone, off beat angle, and sometime quirky faces are wonderful. Keep on shooting, Jann! From your fellow traveler/photographer in Rome.

  • Ciao Jann-

      Heather mille grazie for looking around the site and for your comments! This is really a coincidence, but I was admiring your site & photos yesterday and tried to leave you a comment, but was tripped up by technology. I’m going to try again a bit later…jann
