The Collosseum

Whilst in Rome, it’s unavoidable to pay a visit to the Collosseum. I started taking photos of it even before we landed! This small collection was taken from my iphone. I used my Canon DSLR too, but I’ve still got to go through those photos (There are a LOT), that’s the great thing about iphoneography; mobile editing. I went through these images in a cafe just after taking them. It meant my memory of the place was still fresh and the grandeur of the building was still on my mind. I think this can have an effect when it comes to editing. Either way, what a place!

Taken in the skies above Rome. I managed to frame the Colosseum near the centre.

The labyrinth of corridors that were hidden under the grand stage

A Gladiators view

What it might have looked like for some...

I love the clouds, they really give this image its impact.
