The Amazing Light in Pantheon – Rome

Pompeii – Italy

Pompeii was an ancient Roman city which got buried under the nearby Mount Vesuvius’s eruption in A.D. 79.
It was then excavated in 19th century with the help of many archaeologists and architects. From its restored architecture, we can figure out the lavish lifestyle of romans, the villas they had, their interest in art and fresco, and the kind of utensils they used.
Urban planning is one of the key highlights of this ancient city with streets, squares and trade hubs properly planned. It is situated in the province of Naples near the sea, which shows it was an important ancient city for trade and business.
Objects buried beneath Pompeii were well-preserved for almost 2,000 years as the lack of air and moisture allowed little to no deterioration. However, once exposed, Pompeii has been subject to both natural and man-made forces, which have rapidly increased deterioration.
It is one of the most popular tourist attraction in Italy and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

I had a limited time to photograph Pompeii with light quickly disappearing but tried to cover the most of it.
Hope you will enjoy the photographs.

Lucca (Italy) – The Bicycle City

Lucca is a city on the Serchio river in Italy’s Tuscany region. It’s known for the well-preserved Renaissance walls encircling its historic city center and its cobblestone streets. Broad, tree-lined pathways along the tops of these massive 16th- and 17th-century ramparts are popular for strolling and cycling.

Colosseum – Rome, Italy

I dont photograph monuments or architecture, i pick up the light on them and pour into my mould of composition. Every building i have visited has my photographic take on it. It maybe ordinary or a masterpiece, but it will surely be different.
Here is one of the great Colosseum in Rome, Italy.

Happy Viewing,

Vatican Museums – World Tourism Day

On World Tourism Day, i was lucky to be in Rome and visited Vatican Museums. Above, behind and around me were hand painted and sculpted walls.
Witnessing Michelangelo’s paintings at Sistine Chapel, specially The Creation of Adam, was surely a sight to remember.

Here are some glimpses for you from my visit. (All the photos/videos are made using a mobile phone in this blog and are unedited)

Happy viewing!
