Red Vespa in Rome

Hi all

I decided to switch over to Blogger, mostly due to the ease of uploading photos to the web via Google+.

On this occasion I also renamed the blog: Zoom Therapy

Here is the link to the new blog:

Hi all

it’s impossible to think of Rome without the plurality of 2-wheel vehicles running all around.

The most famous one is obviously the Vespa, with its many years of history

They come with all colors, but the most noticeable is the red color 🙂

35mm, f/13, 1/80 Sec, ISO 100, Red filter applied, other red color areas removed later by post processing

Padlocks in the Colosseum

Leave a comment

Hi all

While visiting the old part of Rome, and enjoying the beautiful weather, I saw a strange thing: Tens of padlocks where connected to each other in some places, as you can see here:

It took me some time to find a reference (thanks Google…) to the source of this phenomena: These are locks of love, usually put by young couples who write their names on the locks. They are cluttered in several places in Rome, especially at the oldest bridge of the city, Pone Milvio. It all started back in 2006 when a book and TV episode written by Federico Moccia where it is claimed that a couple who put their names on a padlock on a lampost on this bridge, and throw the key to the river will enjoy eternal love. So it seems that the legend found its way also to the surroundings of the Colosseum
