A "Who-Done-It"

Prone Body, Merry-Go-Round, Piazza Navona, Rome, Italy

Early one morning,
 in the ancient city of Roma,
 in a deserted Piazza Navona,
 by a motionless Merry-Go-Round,
lay a mysterious body,
 still and quiet... deathly quiet.

Who-done-it?

  1. Too funny! I didn't get the title until I opened the photo. Nicely framed :) And probably a comforting spot to sleep?

  6. Fabulous post Doug. I think a horse and a bottle of Scotch may have been involved.
