Thursday Doors December 1, 2016

My contribution to this week’s Thursday Doors challenge features this  door located somewhere in Rome, Italy and I’m thinking it is in or near the Vatican. Much to my sorrow, I can’t say for certain.

I either wasn’t very attuned to life around me, or it never… Continue reading Dust Storms
