P1040276 - edited 40%I've been struggling with this week's Saturday Photo Hunt theme for several days, trying to figure out what to post. How do you interpret "promise" in a photo?

Finally, I pored over my photos from my time in Rome last year and came up with a shot of Trevi Fountain.

Built of Travertjne stone, Trevi is the largest Baroque fountain in Rome and is considered one of the most beautiful in the world. Two different legends speak of promises made by the fountain. In the more familiar legend, a visitor who tosses a coin into the fountain is promised a return visit to Rome. The other legend says that a couple that drinks from the fountain will forever remain faithful to each other.
