Roman Holiday II: Via della Minerva

This is a good example of what I was saying about choosing somewhere comfortable to sit before choosing what to draw.

Behind me is the Pantheon: the world's largest unreinforced concrete dome, even after two thousand years. To the left, is a curious Bernini fountain with an elephant carrying an obelisk on its back.

But the wall I'm sitting on faces a lamppost and a MacDonald's sign, so that's what I draw.
