We Can See You, Rome


This was shot inside Hadrian’s Mausoleum. It’s circular plan owed much to the Mausoleum of Augustus. It was begun about AD 130, but was not yet completed by the time of Hadrian’s death, the Emperor being buried in another place until the Mausoleum was ready.
Of note are the sweeping arches and ceiling paintings and also, the security camera staring right at me – a modern Sentinel?

  1. I like the composition, architectural lines, and soft color. The contrast of ancient and modern (security camera) is subtle yet humorously ironic.

  2. woot, thankyou! I finally came to a site where the webmaster knows what they’re talking about. Do you know how many results are in Google when I search.. too many! It’s so annoying having to go from page after page after page, wasting my day away with thousands of people just copying eachother’s articles… bah. Anyway, thankyou very much for the info anyway, much appreciated.
