Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #66: Filling the Frame

On our brief visit to Rome in 2012, we took a bus trip around the city to see the most we could in the short time we had.  Of course, taking photos from a bus is always a dicey prospect, what with the window glare, other passengers, and no way to control the angle or distance of your shots.  But I still always do it anyways!

I took dozens of bad photos, but sometimes the closeness of the subjects, in this case the buildings of Rome, worked to my advantage.  We got to see the Colosseum both from a distance and also a little closer.



I didn’t even know what this next building was at the time (the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore), but somehow I managed to fill the frame with it so nicely it became one of my favorite photos from this visit.


You can find more frames filled at the original Lens-Artist challenge.

      Yes! One bus ride was definitely not enough!

    I’m so impressed. I never get decent shots from a car or bus, but you did! Your images highlight the beauty of Rome. An amazing place.

      Haha thank you. There were dozens of blurry ones, too! But these ones I thought did a good job capturing some of the feel of the great city.

    Really love your second image Mei-Mei with the Colosseum curving away. By the way Mei-Mei in Afrikaans Mei is the word for the month of May

      Thank you! And thank you for sharing that bit of knowledge, I had no idea Mei was also an Afrikaans word, very cool.
