Unique Perspectives

Many popular photos of the Roman colosseum appear to isolate the structure from the bustling city background; utilizing long exposures to blur out traffic and low angles to miss the city streets wrapping around it. Makes for nice postcards.

This shot goes for a more unique perspective. Taken at mid-afternoon, it captures only a slice of the colosseum; yet the grandeur of the structure is not lost when contrasted with the people and cars diminishing down the street from the foreground.
