Pantheon at Night

Pantheon at Night

August 30, 2005 | Rome

This photo was so frustrating to capture. I brought just a small, flimsy tripod with me on my trip and on the coblestone streets it was an endless problem. It didn't help that my patience for the crowd was running low. I wanted to capture a scene that included some movement of the crowd, which I got here, but I was hoping to catch more movement. All the other shots I took that were longer exposures ended up blurry. Fairly frustrating. Anyway, when I go back to Rome (no immediate plans though), I will be sure to take my time here.

The Pantheon is one of my favorite sites in Rome. It kind of suprises you as you walk through the maze of streets. It's very nestled in a nice part of town and is a good hang out place to visit. The church itself is interesting, but not worth a terribly long visit. It's an old Roman temple that was converted to a Christian Church and thus ensured its safety through the Middle Ages. It's a huge tourist trap, but so is the rest of Rome.
