Pompeii (Color)

Europe, International Travel, Photography

Pompeii was an ancient Roman town-city near modern Naples, in the Campania region of Italy. Pompeii, along with Herculaneum and many villas in the surrounding area, was mostly destroyed and buried under 4 to 6 m (13 to 20 ft) of volcanic ash and pumice in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. While I shared a black & white set of photos yesterday, today I thought I’d include a few color shots.

Pompeii (Black & White)

Europe, International Travel, Photography

Pompeii was an ancient Roman town-city near modern Naples, in the Campania region of Italy. Pompeii, along with Herculaneum and many villas in the surrounding area, was mostly destroyed and buried under 4 to 6 m (13 to 20 ft) of volcanic ash and pumice in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. It is a larger site than one imagines, and the perfect location for black & white photography.

Following the Spanish Steps, we make our way to Trevi Fountain and the surrounding area. Trevi Fountain is the largest Baroque fountain in Rome and one of the most famous fountains in the world. As with most of Rome, the area is an open-air museum filled with statues, churches, squares, and obelisks.

Rome: Spanish Steps

Europe, International Travel, Photography

The Spanish Steps are a set of steps in Rome, climbing a steep slope between the Piazza di Spagna at the base and Piazza Trinità dei Monti, dominated by the Trinità dei Monti church at the top. It’s almost always crawling in people, so one needs to get creative when photographing the area.
