Colosseum by lostphojo


The holiday snaps continue!

I last visited this place in 1972 when it sat in the middle of a busy roundabout and it felt like I was risking my life to get across. Fortunately the road layout has been rearranged. Also the stones were black, so someone has been busy with a scrubbing brush! I only have colour prints of it but they now have a strong green cast so I guess I used Agfa film. (The Kodaks are now orange!)

The sky in this shot is very blue, by the way.
It is good to hear and see that more care is being taken with this national treasure.

really lovely shot of the colosseum - I so agree about the changed setting and the cleaned up stonework. You did well to get all this in and not a distracting person in sight (yes I know you have a group of people looking out - but they are not distracting).

Impressive capture and processing!
