Sadly, it's our last night in Italy. Before its end, I challenged myself to take a night photo of the Colosseum. It's hard to get a good vantage point since it is always surrounded by people, and half of it is currently covered in scaffolding for restoration. I managed to catch this one during Blue Hour, and although it's not ideal, it sums up a Rome that I will remember–a bustling contradiction of the modern and the ancient–its people and lights reflected on the rain-slicked streets. What a beautiful place! #rome #italy #colosseum #vacation #travel #nightphotography #italia


The Basilica of St. Mary of Angels and the Martyrs in Rome. This is the first photo I have posted that I was able to edit on a computer. I left my laptop at home for the trip, so I was editing everything on my phone. Also, as soon as I touched down in Rome, I was immediately trying to identify which buildings I've "Ezio'd" (scaled in Assassin's Creed). I think visiting a place I have immersed myself in through a video game made it more exciting for me. #italy #rome #italia #roma #rooftopview #cityscape #travel
