Happened upon this amazing scene accidentally walking through Rome’s largest landscaped park. I happened to be on Via Aurelia …one of Rome’s ancient streets and ducked in to get a little protection from the fast cars. I’m so glad I did because i got to see Rome’s version of Central Park …including this amazing villa !!! Google informed me it is Villa Doria Pamphili, a 17th century villa built by the Pamphili family. The park seems to be known as Villa Pamphili also, and caters mostly to locals ..runners, picnickers, families. I felt really lucky to stumble upon it and catch a glimpse of the stunning grounds of the villa itself. I happen to believe in Heaven …and that God often gives us a few glimpses of “the way it is supposed to be.” …through food, art, flowers, kindness …and certainly places. As I looked in and saw these gardens landscaped around this remarkable white villa, I had that exact thought …This is a tiny glimpse of perfection …and what Heaven will bring when it comes. I wanted to just sit down and enjoy how beautiful it seemed. 116/365 #jessicathompson365#rome#italy#roma#villadoriapamphili#romeparks#publicspaces#beauty#landscape#gardens#urbanspace#heaven#architecture#villas#italianvillas#photooftheday#jhtitaly2017

Last bits of sunlight on 27 April: A terribly composed image, I know. I was on my way back when I spotted the sun peak through the clouds after the thunderstorm we had earlier this afternoon. So I literally had to rush to this spot and set up everything. This is a scene of block 15 and 18 Bedok South as seen from block 14. Block 14 is rather unique in that it is not uniform in height, so where I stood was the highest floor that offered this view. The rest of the floors above this do not offer a common corridor, strangely enough. I would personally have preferred not to have block 15 obstructing most of the view on the left, to be perfectly honest.
