Good afternoon....
Thank you for your continued support and to Nezih (Nonur), Patty (Pentaxpatty) and Andrew (Chiliman) for their UA's....much appreciated.
We visited the Colosseum today besides other attractions. How magnificent it must have been in its day. 76 numbered entrances and 4 VIP entrances all leading into this huge elliptical amphitheatre commissioned by the greatest Flavian emperor Vespasian. Processed lead pic in Sepia to age it...
I have included a few images around the Colosseum as well as some of our beautiful hotel. We have a magnificent view from the small patio leading off our room overlooking a church and the roof tops of Rome (V12) . Lovely to sit outside on their rooftop patio at sunset drinking margaritas V 13 and 14
P.S My day just got ruined...hotel bar has just run out of tequila.. Horrors....

Wonderful set Colleen, I like the processing, giving it an even more ancient look. I always struggled with the light here,
when the sun is so strong it can be difficult but you have captured some excellent images. Nice work.
Beautifull little chalet you are staying in as well Wink (Now i do have serious withdrawal symptoms) SmileSmile

Hope your hand is not hurting too much.
Dave.

WOWWW. I had no idea the colosseum was THAT big until I saw V4 with all those tiny ant people!! Unreal.

Your hotel is something else too, Colleen. What an amazing interior. Thanks for sharing that with us Smile

Just love that patio too, with those flowers and that view. Bet they looked even better through the filters in V14 WinkGrin

What a great set once again...

I have seen many an image of this ancient monument but never in quite the detail you have shown: what a complex structure it was/is, and a tribute to the skills of the Roman builders of the day. My favourites are V 3, 4 and 5.

All the splendour of Rome - amazing architecture and history.
The hotel looks sumptuous. Have been to the Colosseum for a tour once
but wasn't into photography then - the missed opportunities.
Wonderful set of images Colleen.
