Q: How do I download my original images?

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

After a busy day in Rome, I captured several images, including this one, from inside the train that would take Fred and me back to Cesano, a village near where we live. This scene makes me think of politics and the abuse of power the world over, past and present.

    Clever entry, Deb! I can see how you could interpret this that way. Politics can be so divisive; even among family and friends. So frustrating, and sad at the same time.
