Thoughts about the relationships between transport and the urban area it serves

Weekly Photo Challenge: Collage

with 3 comments

I am taking the prompt very literally again.

“The Roman neighborhood of Trastevere is perennially popular with both tourists and locals…”

Yes, I know I’ve been there. Twice actually. We stayed in Rome across the river in a much cheaper neighbourhood called Testaccio. We would have been connected by a direct tram service, but the track was being worked on, and the replacement bus was much less attractive. But we got across the river and used the tram in Trastevere, which is one of the best in the system, as much of it is on an exclusive right of way.

There are many attractions – including the Villa Farnesina that was closed when we got there, hence the need for the second trip.

This week, share a collage with us. It can be a collage you find out in the world — a grouping of flyers on a telephone pole, patches of plants in a bed of flowers, a parking lot checkered with colorful cars — or a collage made of multiple photos. (What a great use of a tiled gallery! Nudge nudge.)

So below this paragraph is my tiled gallery. Many of the images have not been shared on flickr, but have been uploaded solely for this post. Click on any picture to enlarge it, and you can then see the rest, full page, by clicking the left or right arrow next to the image.

I also made a video of the Trio Taraf playing in the Piazza di Santa Maria
