“Famous Fountain” : Rome, 4th September 2010
OK, tonight we’re getting really touristy and I’m throwing out a shot of that Roman magnet the Trevi fountain.
In my defence, I’ll say that in comparison with another well-trodden sight in the city, the Spanish Steps, this one really is quite wonderful, as long as you go at night when the floodlights and the good-natured international crowd that swamp the place make for a very pleasant atmosphere. Keep a close watch on your valuables, though…
This shot was nice in colour, but turned out even better in monochrome, the particular treatment I used bringing a strange look to the cascading water.
