A Weekend at the Center of the World
Rome is surreal. It appears dug-up from antiquity by the gods themselves. With ruins scattered throughout the city, the people, cars and modern buildings seem to create a frail, make-shift shanty town which exists in the grandeur of a people and time long past. Known once as the center of the world, Rome has to be seen to be believed.
These pictures were taken in various places around Rome. The shots of the Colosseum were taken hand held at a l/8 of a second. Other shots are a mixture of HDR and some make shift tripod work. Rome truly is a beautiful city with a ton to offer any visitor.
