Shadow Shot Sunday

Here's the Colosseum, in Rome.
Even 2,274 years later (!), can't you just
see the gladiators down here waiting to
face their fate?

[See more Shadow Shots here.]


  1. i visited rome last october and i was blown away by the colisseum! i could definitely imagine how it was all those years ago,

  2. Wow, amazing shadows, and all that history

  3. It almost looks to me like the shadows of people looking over the edge at those awaiting gladiators. When I visited the Colosseum, I felt the goosebumps rising!

  4. Oh yes I can totally imagine that! Those are some wild shadows you've captured. It must be an amazing place to visit! Enjoy the rest of yor weekend :)

  5. The gladiators
    wait to meet their fate—one will
    die and one will live.

    Derelict Dwelling Shadows

  6. it's one of the most fascinating places I've ever visited. & I must say I am just glad that part of history is over!
    Cool photo Alexa.

  7. The shadows of history. You can almost hear the crowd. A very nice shot.

  8. Great shot. How did you get up so high to take it?

  9. I have never been to Rome... I would love to have a time machine, though, and be invisible, to see the activities under and in the coliseum.

  10. Great Sunday Shot photo!
