#AtoZChallenge X for X – that’s ten in Roman Numerals

X for X – Roman Numerals

X for X – that’s ten in Roman numerals but I know you know that.

Why did I take this photo?

When traveling sometimes I get a topic in my head I cannot seem to leave a alone. There was the time I was fascinated by puffer jackets in Italy. No matter how puffy the jackets were the woman wearing them did not look like a Michelin man. A photo of a big door is always an option. Or archways sometimes take my fancy. So one trip to Italy I got caught up with the lettering carved into the buildings. I knew it would come in handy someday.

So I decided to share with your some of the other odd pictures I have taken beyond just the Roman numerals. There are a few of the Roman numerals ones too. It interesting to see some have borders. This is from the early days of Instagram when it was popular to add frames and filters. Currently I post the most of my images raw in Instagram with only cropping, if I fancy it.

  1. Your puffer jacket observation is so spot on Fran. A huge sigh! and my ample shoulders droop under a cotton top–we (my shoulders and I) can just about manage thin cotton to avoid looking like a the M man:)
    Cool arches. I shoot doors and arches and windows when I’m out and about and post them on pinterest.

    1. I recently got a puffer for my winter trips. I decided to get one to avoid getting a cold this year as I have had some bad ones in the past. Finally sensibleness took over from vanity and I had a much more enjoyable time.

    1. The last few letters are a bit more difficult so I suspect a few used the Roman numeral X. Loved your pics of Werribee. I have not been there for ages but always enjoyed my visits when we lived in Melbourne.

    1. In Rome on one of those tour buses. The meta data says Via Vittorio Emanuele Orlando, 94-97. It’s good when taking photos with my mobile or when I remember to turn on the meta data with my camera so I can check out things later. I have a pile of photos with no date when I mucked up my date settings.
