Well, I don’t think that taking pictures of the Colosseo is really what Romans do… maybe some…
Aside from the latte, spaghetti and beautiful women, one very good reason to visit Rome is that it’s one of the most photogenic cities in the world. With its broad lanes, majestic buildings, romatic squares and great culture it’s the wet dream of every photographer.
In a way it had to be a beautiful city as it was once the capital of a huge empire. If I were an emperor and money was not an issue I’d make sure my city was pretty too.
You may notice – no, you will notice – that I started experimenting with HDR, which makes many photos a bit like paintings… I still had lots to learn… I still do.
