Che foto meravigliosa.
Appena l’ho aperta mi ha fatto dire:Mamma mia!
😀 Baci cara.
Beautiful shot. I’d love to visit Rome one day.
Hello Mark 🙂
Good day Paula. Hope you have a good weekend lined up? Nothing too stressful I hope?
It has suddenly turn into winter here, I caught a cold which I hope to cure by tomorrow to be able to enjoy my gym class. Other than that it will be just editing photos and catching up with friends. I hope you are not working over weekend, Mark.
No work for me this weekend! Actually celebrating my 15th wedding anniversary with my lovely wife + even have a day off today.
Oh, that’s a big number 🙂 Congratulations to you and your wife, Mark 🙂
Thank you Paula 🙂
Oh, love it! One day I’ll get to Rome!
You’ve been to Sicily… a few more steps and you are in Rome 😉
What a wonderful image, Paula. A bridge still standing!
🙂 I was in Rome only once and despite many obstacles on our trip it was wonderful, so wonderful that I am afraid to go back in fear it would spoil my earlier memories 😀
This is a great take on the challenge,Paula. You bridge looks fabulous! Love the music and the rhythm, what am I listening to?
Hope you get rid off your cold very soon! Bonn is very warm at the moment, sending you warm regards and sunny spells,
Hi Dina, thank you for the wishes. I will recover in a jiffy – it is justa weather shock, just a few days ago we were in Lisabon at 36 Celsius and now it is 11 Celsius in Zagreb. You are listening to Biagio Antonacci – Ti penso raramente. A catchy tune, isn’t it? 🙂
Indeed it is! 🙂
Wishing you a speedy recovery, Paula!
Stor klem ❤
Thanks so much
Those Romans did amazing work!
Still on my ‘list’ 🙂 Reminds me of the bridge at Avignon. Not been there either. 🙂
How are you settling back into life, Paula?
Hi Jo, I am a bit overwhelmed with all the backlog at work, and touched that so many co-workers needed me – makes me think I won’t lose my job any time soon :D. Both hubby and I suffered a tremendous temperature shock and are with cold now, but I plan to be well by tomorrow morning – to many things to do to be lying around. How are you?
That’s a good feeling- to have been missed and needed. Family crisis ongoing with my daughter which I’m powerless to help with but otherwise fine. Get well again soon. (incidentally- have you been nominated for the 5 photos/5 stories challenge, and would you want to be?) Hugs, Paula!
No, no, I don’t want to – it would be flattering and you are the only one to think of nominating me so big thanks – I am a bit overwhelmed with my chores now. What’s going on with Lisa? I hope it is not the health issue? I won’t pry, but you got me worried.
Yes- Leo. I thought not for 5 from your previous response. Take care, sweetheart.
😦 her husband is ill. So sorry to hear that Jo 😦
You didn’t ruin the shot of the ruins 😉
Did you see that one when you were in Rome?
Wasn’t time 😦
There is never enough time to see things.

Still in Tunisia?
Yeah just at this moment relaxing with a strong drink after yesterday a sandy day… 😀
Tomorrow the coast are waiting and sunday so it’s back to France… 🙂
When you say a sandy day, are you implying that you were in a sand storm, or just desert as the one you sent me? 😀 What do they use as a strong drink over there?
No storm at all, so boring lazy wind – but hot… 😀
A kind of grappa or brandy – the fruits from the date palms tastes amazing this way… 😀
Date grappa! I only had date liquor once- soft staff with less than 30% alcohol.
My guess, this is about 45… 🙂
I thought there was a limit to alcoholic beverages of 40%. I was once at a party where they served 50% smirnoff – I don’t want to repeat that.
Black Smirnoff is 80 – some countries have limits not all – the home made stuff in Norway sometimes close to 90 – we have to know not drink to much and not to fast – we have to remember to enjoy it… 😀
80? 90? That stuff can blind you and make you brain-dead!
Just have to merely “moisturize” lips – don’t dump it in the throat as if it was water… 🙂
So it is medicinal then, as a dental disinfectant 😀
You are an angel – from now I’ll say “It’s only medicine”… 😀
😀 you do that. Doctor’s orders – to get the blood flowing and heart stronger 🙂
Everything is toxic if it is in excessive amounts – except coffee… 😀
Coffee is the greatest poison – it makes my heart race
And my brain clear – or as clear as it can be… 😀
Have you tried ginkgo instead? 😀 (I guess not :D) Yoga makes my brain clear 😉
Have heard about it – but I love the taste of coffee – was two years old when I tasted it first time… 🙂
I know yoga is great – but too little movement for a guy like me, so I have my black mountainbike – it do the same the sweaty way… 🙂
I started both alcohol and coffee when I was three 😛 Sweat is great but one needs to stretch and breathe slowly also. 🙂
You are right about that – “after-biking” is always to remember to stretch – and most mountain bikers do breath slowly otherwise they go ‘dead’ very fast.
What do you do in winter when you can’t bike? Do you ski or do stationary bike?
Stationary bike – no way… 😀
Kaysersberg in Alsace is close to places for ski or snowboard – I’m not a fanatic but loves good food and wine – but still want to be the one who doesn’t get out of breath on the stairs – that’s the reason why have my bikes and my snowboard… 🙂
le titre est bien choisi avec l’image ! et la lumière va bien avec pour ce thème
Je te remercie Marc. Comment vas-tu? J’ai voyage pour une semaine 🙂
Très bien merci Paula. Moi j’ai voyagé par l’intermédiaire des films que j’ai vu au festival du film à cannes ! une trentaine depuis le début et c’est pas fini encore demain…
J’espere que cela ne te fatigue pas. Puis tu me diras quels films tu as aimes 🙂
Fatiguant oui un peu pour les yeux ! autrement il y en a pas mal qui m’ont plu mais là faut que je me remette tout en mémoire j’en ai trop vu et je mélange un peu tout (hier 5 films dans la journée !)
Le film croate “Un certain regard” a gagne “Prix du Jury” 🙂 Tu l’as vu? 😀
oui le film Zvizdan traduit par soleil de plomb je l’ai vu et j’ai bien aimé oui
Wow, that bridge is amazing. Besides the fact that it is still beautiful but it’s so hard believe how long it has withstood time. 🙂
Amazing, isn’t it! 🙂 Thank you for visiting me before my bed time, Linda. xx
I don’t want to be heard. But still standing counts for something.
Amazing photo. Love this.
not sure what I like more – the song or the photo – and together the perfect pair – Rome is on my list!
Coucou Paula ! Tu as choisi un titre qui me va bien… 😉
Ta photo est très impressionnante.
J’espère que tu vas bien. Bisous !
Part of an old aqueduct perhaps?
This is very beautiful.
I’m glad you like it, Maria. Thank you.
A far more complex image than usual Paula, showing so much detail in every dimension, reflecting the long history of the subject. It’s still very much there.
Great choice for the theme, Paula. 🙂
It is perfect for the challange…
Amazing and what an honor to see in person I bet!
We cycled by this spot in Rome and I found it such a remarkable sight. Your photo a rich and romantic feel. Thank you for taking me back to Italy.
I remember your brave endavour cycling in Rome and in heat moreover 🙂 That broken bridge is what touched me most while I was there. I was happy to share this with you, Sue.
I love old architecture (and Rome). This is a great shot!
Thank you very much 🙂
Lovely photo – it leaves me wondering – where, how, why? So I search and learn. Thank you for challenging me – have a wonderful week.
Still hanging on after all these years . . . what a great scene Paula. Hope you are feeling better soon!
Roman ruins – let’s hope we never lose them. Beautiful photo, Paula.
Wow! Such a shame that it’s broken. Fantastic piece of architecture and great photo Paula. I need to visit Rome some day.
Yes, you should 🙂
178 BC? Et les équipes de maintenance elles traînent!
(J’ai pas vu ça à Rome. Ça devait être en entretien)
Beautiful choice for the challenge Paula, well done!
What a magnificent piece of architecture.
