One of the things that I truly love about photography is it gives you a way to preserve and keep your memories. This photo comes from last year, around this same time. My husband and I love to travel, and I am one of those people who has a camera permanently attached to my hand because I don’t want to miss anything. I don’t want to forget a single detail of our time together, or what we see as we take on the world.
This picture notates my favorite part of Rome: the Colosseum. This structure was the largest piece of architecture that the Roman Empire ever completed, and I marveled at the magnitude and presence that it still has today. It is a representation of the force of history; a testament to the importance of culture and longevity of human as a whole civilization. That in itself makes it one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.

When Falls the Coliseum, Rome Shall Fall;
And When Falls Rome, the World.” -Lord Byron
