  4. The “glasses half off” made me smile!

    • I guess they were on sale. How many other things could be half off?

  5. WoW! Thanks for sharing…especially the ‘Colosseum’…brings back the story behind Spartacus.
    Great pictures…

  6. The side door to hell made me straight think of the movie 300! Awesome.

  7. Like the B&W for a change. It oddly suits Rome. Love! the “Side Door to Hell” caption. Apropos.

    • Thank you Eric. I have been splitting some of my European stuff into separate monochrome and color posts. The WordPress.Com audience seems to like that.

  8. Wonderful set. Glad to know the trusty paper map is still available.

    • I hope so because my phone does not work in Europe.

  9. “Spiral Staircase” is a great one! Thank you!

  11. I especially like the way all the curves go into a corner of the frame on the Colosseum shot.

    • Thank you Robert. When I posted this image in a certain large photography forum viewers said it was trite. I guess they did not like me there.

      July 10, 2013 at 2:48 pm

      • Commonplace? Banal? I don’t think so…I guess to each their own, but trite does not seem to be a valid comment for this shot – oh well.

        • What was happening there had nothing to do with the photographs I published. It was cyberbullying.

          July 10, 2013 at 4:44 pm

        • I understand and too bad – a sour experience could put folks off forums where useful collaboration is fun and informative.

  12. Fantastic pics as I have grown to expect.

  13. Very nice shoots, B & W a bitt different than the previous stories? Wonderful collection,
    When we are going to see Vienna?

    July 10, 2013 at 6:39 pm

    • Ok, I have to put Vienna on my bucket list. I was there a while back before I figured out this photography thing. Thanks.

      July 10, 2013 at 7:11 pm

      • Hi Ron, many things changed in a positive since and i think Vienna worth another chance, may be we can ride together to some hidden points around this metropolis, cheers

        I do/have but paying back student loans currently and can’t.

  17. Beautifully done. I love how your composition and black and white really minimize the people and emphasize the architecture.
