30 Roman art - Villa Farnesina frescoes

«You see, Junko, I'm more of the photo-seat than of the photo-walk party...»

Most of you know that I enjoyed the privilege of meeting Junko Yokota @jyokota and spend a few hours with her in Rome a couple of days ago. We visited the beautiful Palazzo Massimo, where the frescoes of the ancient Roman Villa Farnesina, dating about 2000 years, were restored and exhibited in their real position. Even lighting has been planned to simulate the natural lighting of the Roman villa. A nice place to rest a moment.
I'm seriously impressed with how you incorporated the third dimension trompe l'oeil in this shot!

So truly wonderful and a tribute to your sense of incorporating the classics with contemporary which is always so engaging and amazing. Fav!

Utterly amazing and very clever. Incredible to think that fresco is 2000 years old, hard to get my head around. The impact of the fresco is heightened by the inclusion of you and @jyokota Junko in the end product.

Did you see the setup photo I posted? http://365project.org/jyokota/365/2018-03-30

I agree with @vignouse your creativity is inspiring
April 1st, 2018  
Fantastic.
April 1st, 2018  
I love what and how you did this. It's a wonderful outcome, and was interested in seeing how you set it up?
April 2nd, 2018  
holy camoley! this is awesome, you two! i love it!!!
April 2nd, 2018  
And look! Now we are on the curated page!

@francoise haha, the fact is, Françoise, that I'm not so good at photo-walks... Indeed a plan, and time for the set-up... unless I'm up to street photography, that is always difficult when two persons go around each with his own camera!
@jyokota Very proud, especially because this is not my own photo, it's definitely half mine and half yours!
@ukandie1 Thank you very much, Andie!
@helenhall Thanks a lot, Helen!
@taffy Should I post the individual photos I and Junko made of each other with "that camera - not that tripod"? Thank you a lot, Taffy!
@summerfield Thanks, dear Vikki, thank you very much!
April 2nd, 2018  
Wow I have just been directed to your images by Junko @jyokota and am so pleased I have “discovered” your work! Such creativity! I shall enjoy going through your project! Fav and following!

Beyond amazing!
April 6th, 2018  
@taffy @jyokota WOW! None of my photos ever went on the TT list! Thank you for reporting, Taffy! Credits to Junko, whose presence made nicer the photo and whose hand took a perfect portrait of me, collaged in this image, that is a perfectly 50-50 success!
April 6th, 2018  
@featherstone26 Thank you very much!
April 6th, 2018

April 6th, 2018  
@pistache Thank you so much, Clare, I am really proud and happy that my collar with Junko "won" the TT, I had never attained it.
April 6th, 2018  
WOW Domenico!!!! We're on TT! Thanks for putting us up there! It's a nice place to perch together, isn't it?
April 7th, 2018  
This looks fabulous, it's hard to tell what is real and what isn't. Congrats on TT.
April 7th, 2018  
@jyokota WE put us there! Don’t forget it was you that took my photo... and using my manual focus rangefinder camera! Cool indeed!
@bella_ss thank you very much!
April 7th, 2018  
Just saw this on TT, wonderful image of you and @jyokota . Congrats!
April 7th, 2018  
@inthecloud5 Thank you! Acceding the TT is the proof that friendship is the fulcrum on which to place one's lever and move the world! @jyokota
April 7th, 2018  
@bella_ss And thank you for following, easily reciprocated, I love your photographs!
April 7th, 2018  
@domenicododaro -- even your responses to others show your literary writing flair . . .
April 8th, 2018  
@jyokota Too kind of you, Junko. You know, if I ever resolve to write my novel about the camps, I am daringly considering to write it in English... I will need a very good editor for my poor grammar, but I think I could get along with it!
April 8th, 2018  
TT!!! Congrats!!!
April 8th, 2018  
@domenicododaro -- let's talk about this.
April 8th, 2018  
Fabulous!
