#139: Via Tomacelli

#139, Rome

That 9 looks as though it has taken one puff too many!

The uniformity of this photo really appeals to me right now. Like I want to crawl inside of it.

Also-- random associations-- the number reminds me of Captain Von Trapp in the Sound of Music. I've been in love with him since I was five. So, the association is probably a good thing, though I don't understand its derivation.

Julie - The number is permanently affixed to a bank, so I can't say I blame it.

Jackie - I do love hearing people's random associations. More fun than a roomful of Rorschach blobs around here.

For my part, I harbored a childhood crush on Dick Van Dyke as the chimney sweep in Mary Poppins. Maybe that's where I get my love of charming urban grime.
