Ailsa’s Travel Theme this week is ‘Broken’. Some things are really photogenic when they’re broken and in ruins, and millions of tourist every year, pay good money to visit them and take endless photos like these.
The Colosseum, one of Italy’s most treasure landmarks, was completed in 80 AD, and has been crumbling for many centuries.
I wonder if the labourers who built it, ever imagined that their efforts would one day look like this. I’m sure that those unfortunate people who perished here, would be astonished to know that, way in the future, it would be such a popular tourist attraction.
There is so much ‘broken’ stuff in Rome, and I was quite happy to walk my legs off, in order to see as much of it as possible.
Do you also have a love affair with ruined buildings and broken stuff? If so, you may want to join in Ailsa’s challenge this week.
Oh yes, before I go, here’s a dumpster full of broken stuff outside our ‘abandoned house’. This is the second one that hubby has filled! He’s certainly been having a smashing time. 🙂
