Castel and Bridge

Castel and Bridge

Castel Sant'Angelo represents the uniqueness of old old Rome.

Built originally as a mausoleum by Emperor Hadrian in around 123-139CE, the complex was later used as a Papal residence and fortress and then a prison. It is still in use today as a museum and tourist attraction.

In researching Rome photography using 500px, Flickr and the Modern Atlas app I realised that Castel Sant'Angelo would present a range of shooting opportunities.

In some respects this image gives prominence to the castle, and the starburst of the lights on the bridge work well in this composition.

To tell the story of a subject is an important part of the experience. And it gives a better chance of getting a unique image.
