Wordless Wednesday




I keep seeing previews for the romantic comedy When in Rome with Josh Duhamel, Kristen Bell, and Angelica Houston so this seemed a fitting picture for today.  In 2006, I visited Europe with my sister-in-law.   This photo is of the Trevi Fountain in Rome.  It has appeared in a myriad of films so many of you may recognize it.  Throwing a coin into the fountain is said to ensure a return trip to Rome.  Since I'm a sucker for superstitions, I had to join other tourists in throwing a coin into the fountain. I can only hope to return one day.

Don't think I've ever seen that in a film. I suppose it's Pegasus. There's bound to be a legend that goes with the sculpture. But if I ever heard it I've forgotten. Hope you get your wish.
