La Dolce Vita

The sweet life.

A trip this afternoon to the Borghese gardens made me realize that enjoying the simple pleasures in a city like Rome is what it’s all about. Placed above the densely packed streets of Rome, the villas and gardens offer a tranquil reprieve for those willing to climb up the sloping pathways. Here, a completely different atmosphere thrives on the structured landscape of open green space and long avenues of pebbled trail. It’s sometimes hard to believe a place like this exists just above all the hustle and bustle that fills the cobblestone streets of the old city.

As I sat down to sketch a little ways off the pebble trail, I was actually drawn back by this…

Being a big fan of the guitar I couldn’t resist sitting down and capturing this awesome moment. Please, mr. guitarist, just take all my money.
