Palazzo del Grillo
26 Apr '17 — A peachy corner
When my husband and I went to Rome (a while ago), we didn't have a plan as to what to see. We wandered the streets and that provided plenty of entertainment. On one day, whichever direction we wandered, we were to lead to the same corner.
The Piazza del Grillo had this warm gold color with orange peeping out. Like a ripe peach. I didn't mind coming across it again and again. When I tried to take a photo, none of my shots could capture anything close to how I was seeing it. I felt mute, not being able to capture and transmit something I experienced.
The confrontation with color is something better captured through drawing. Today, I used some inks to re-create the experience. Photos can only describe so much.
