To set the scene: It’s a hot July day in Rome, you take a shortcut to a newly discovered gelato place and they just keep coming.
The place is my usual location when in Rome, Monteverde. I posted several shutters from around here already, but they seem to be never-ending. And when I took a photo of one, I had to do it to another, and another, and now I have to show them all to you, even the not very successful ones. Only three of these I discovered on another day. Now I think I’m done, unless I enlarge my walking circle.
Of course, the shops must be closed or you can’t even see these. So this must have been Sunday. The images should depict what is going on in the shop when it’s open but sometimes they don’t really deliver.
The order is roughly from the most basic to the personal favourites. It’s up to you at what point you begin to enjoy them, if at all.
Easy for me to say. I can’t even draw a dog.
Well… at least one washing machine is in there.
They can fix at least one blue Fiat 500.
Here they deal with orangey-yellowy blobs. Maybe they could fix a certain airhead.
They are high tech.
But not as high tech with human interest as these.
They seem to be robbing the place. Just saying.
Again… robbers. They don’t even need car keys from this place!
Death is in the air. Or on the shirts. First I read “Shipteria”, Albanian name for their country.
This one is pretty straightforward. Vanity.
Quite cute, if a little angular.
Spare parts and assistance in case of smoke.
Hmmmm. Has he locked himself in there with her? What is this place?
Little known fact: Freddy Mercury was an insurance agent.
Don’t know what kind but a fun place, no doubt.
Fun again, even if not related. Stationery? Is it because there is Spiderman on those notebooks?
Finally something I can relate to. Egg pasta.
Even better: “Out of grapes – wine”. Need to return when it’s open.
A favourite view.
I don’t even care if they sell graveyard candles. Pretty. Monteverde, Rome.
Always a safe bet.
