Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

One of the things that I wanted to do most, on my trip to Italy, was to see the Colosseum.

Please look at the scene here on Beta, to see it even larger and clearer.

It is one of the those features that you have known about for most of your life, have seen it in still photographs and on films but there is nothing quite like experiencing it!

My daughter visited it earlier in the year and talked about her experience of touching the stones and I know exactly what she meant. I touched the stones gently and wondered about the people, from history, who might have done the same!

WE had a wonderful guide, who talked to us about the Colosseum, why it was created, who was responsible and the political reasons for its existence. I'm sure you know most of this so I will just let you look at my photograph and hope that you experience some of the emotions that I felt.

The day was glorious in every respect!

As a workshop, I will add another photograph which I really like but thought this, showing many details of the Colosseum was a better main post.

Enjoy your day, Bev :-)
