The Curia Julia was the building of the Roman Senate, where the emperors and the senators met to discuss important affairs. This much restored building was completed by Augustus in 28 BC, and is located a few metres away from the Arco di Settimio Severo, featured in my The Forum upload. Today it's home to a small museum housing antiquities from the 1st - 3rd centuries AD, some of which I've shown here - it's amazing how well-preserved they are after 2,000 years. They were, of course, housed behind glass in cases, and I pressed the camera lens close up to the glass to try to avoid reflections as much as possible.

Objects in museums are never easy subjects as I have found at Glasgow's Burrell Collection, but you have done well here without too many reflections getting in on the act.
And such fascinating artefacts they are......I could spend hours in such places.

These are excellent Trev considering they are taken through glass, I wonder in 2,000 years how much of todays products will still be around.

Trev.

V2 is especially lovely, that glass work is just amazing. Very good photographic skill on your part, too.

As to Trev's comment....I'm sure all the plastic junk will still be around in all it's ugliness. We do not live in an aesthetic age!

You have managed the conditions very well, Trev. No irritating reflections disturbing the clarity of the exhibits. Beautifully photographed, in fact.
I claim to be amazingly well preserved, too, though I am not quite prehistoric WinkGrin

Sounds rather like my bathroom, where I go to contemplate and consider important decisions, albeit alone and not in the company of important personages.WinkGrin

Seriously, Trev...impressive images in the light of the circumstances...glass, lights, reflections all over the place...very well done indeed.

Great shot Trev and positioning your camera up to the glass certainly did the trick with those pesky reflections... I use my polariser to the same effect but I realise that can slow your exposure so probably not that good an idea for indoor shots like this one Wink

What a wonderful collection and so beautifully photographed by yourself Trev.
There is a beautiful blue vase with a handle in V2 that I would like. Wonder how much they would want for it TongueGrin. Moira
