If photographers wrote proverbs, they’d probably tell you that great eyes see alike. That explains why two of our members took beautiful (and similar) shots of two beautiful (but very different) historical buildings recently, one in Armenia and one in Rome. Our Photos of the Week are case studies in wonder.
While traveling through Armenia
, UK native Hishyeness
went to the site of the now-in-ruins Zvartnots temple. He snapped a shot of two reconstructed arches that make clear how grand the whole complex must have been in its heyday. Photography buffs, take note: the columns in the center are textbook examples of good framing.
Ever been to Rome
? Member Meggysmum
has, and she’s got the Colosseum
photos to prove it. By waiting until the sun was right behind the outer walls before taking the shot, she gave the band of apertures in the center a bright, alabaster glow. Looks like someone found the lux
of the Roman Empire.
