The Colosseum, Rome

“Being to the Colosseum in Rome was a breath taking moment of my life. For the first time ever, I was at a place where I had already understood the history, and seen countless times before, although never in person. Walking in through the stone arcs was an experience unlike any other, akin to your first time riding a bike, or your first trip on your own. This day was a day of clouds, and drizzle, which is what i am used to as I am from the foggiest capital city in the world (St. John’s) ┬ábut to me, it was a day unlike any other. My mind still holds the taste of the air and the the sound of the crowds of people, enjoying the same monument that I was.”

What an amazing place to be! What could one ask for besides being on small islands in the ocean, built mainly by pouring ancient fill and concrete over stilts, all while being surrounding by the shear sound of crowds of people, without the familiar revving of car and truck engines (as Venice is a walking city).

“Venice, Italy. What an amazing place to be! What could one ask for besides being on small islands in the ocean, built mainly by pouring ancient fill and concrete over stilts, all while being surrounding by the shear sound of crowds of people, without the familiar revving of car and truck engines (as Venice is a walking city). The history that this group of island holds, is unbelievably vast, and you can feel it at every corner of the city. I snapped this image before I set foot for the first time on the main islands that make up the ancient city state! I thought that this was a beautiful, once in a life time shot ( as it is very expensive to travel from North America to Europe!) and decided to snap this one. A snapshot in time, that will forever be in my memory”
