Photo of the Day: Palazzo Doria Pamphilj


Why Photos of the Day?

I am having awful Writer’s Block, despite having no excuse to have this affliction. This past summer, I was fortunate enough to go on family trips to Rhode Island and Italy, visiting many museums on each trip. I have also spent time in recent months visiting DC area sites, attending the National Book Festival, and getting involved in the #museumworkersspeak/#museumsrespondtoferguson group. Though I have ideas and thoughts, I can’t seem to transform them into a polished post.

The purpose of spending the remaining two months of the year posting Photos of the Day is to post something (whether just a photo or musings based on a photo) at this URL so that WordPress doesn’t shut down my blog for lack of activity or any calamity like that. As the holidays approach, the photos will get accordingly festive, because I am holiday-obsessed.

Here is my favorite photo I took in Italy, at the Palazzo Doria Pamphilj in Rome:

    Nice. Surprised they let you take pic’s. Sometimes I think it depends who’s on duty that day!

      In Italy, the rules about photography at indoor destinations were almost always, “Yes, but no flash.” One major exception was the Sistine Chapel. I did try to ask permission first at the museums we visited.

    I like the idea… I was less focused than you were when I started my blog, but I found that WordPress has a really great photography community. And it’s really great because I take more pictures than anyone in my personal life really want to look at, so it’s been great to share them somewhere. And I suspect you might have this in common with me:-)
