The Streets of Pompeii  by pdulis

The Streets of Pompeii

Pompeii is an ancient Roman city that was buried under meters of ash and pumice after the catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D., here seen in the background. I thought a monochrome rendition of this photo may best illustrate the uniqueness of a city frozen in time.
I saw a display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in the 70's that contained many pieces that were uncovered in Pompeii. It truly is a unique place. I'd love to see it if I ever got to Italy.

Very dramatic capture of old Pompei. I was there two years ago and took many shots but it never crossed my mind to do them in mono. Yours came out fabulous.

what a great capture. The shape of the clouds seem to echo the curves of the building structure. That straight road leading the eye right to the mountain is fabulous - especially how it is bathed in light.

What Helen Jane said...and added value with the horizontal blocks of light on the road.

So much to see there. The garden of the fugitives is quiet poignant. B&W suits the shot.
