Piazza d’Aracoeli

Posted on Dec 28, 2009 | 11 comments

So I’m back in Rome and it feels nice to be here (and especially be in nicer weather!). The first thing I did when I got back was go out and take some photos for a shoot I’d scheduled and on my way home I finally got the shot I wanted of this late 16th century fountain in the square. I got the wide angle lens I’ve been wanting and couldn’t wait to try it out. What do you think? Not too shabby! So, you’ll be getting some different views of the city in 2010.

By the way, I had a reader (hi Filippo!), write the other day and ask why I hadn’t covered a particular part of the city very much. To be honest sometimes it’s just because I’m in my routine and since I work in the historic center, I photograph what I’m around. However, if you have other places you think would be good for me to capture, please let me know! I’m always looking for new stuff and will be heading out to the area around the Auditorium, as Filippo suggested, soon.


  1. fabulous shot! i miss rome!

  2. I like the effect of the wide angle on this picture! Nice christmas gift!!

  3. Love the shot! Congrats on your new wide angle. 10mm makes a big difference for city shots.

    I enjoy viewing Rome through your lens and can only come up with Villa Borghese park and a few gelateria.

  4. Not shabby at all!! You are an excellent photographer, and it also helps to have the right tools to further develop your creativity!

  5. Love this shot Jess-enjoy using the lens

  6. Fantastic image! I have the EF-S 10-22mm for my Canon and love it too. I like to play around with the distortion in adds to the image.

  7. A great wide angle. Beautiful!!
    Happy New Year to you.

  8. Oh, I love it!

  9. Thanks everyone and a special thanks to my parents for the gift 🙂

  10. Ugh. I need to make some money so I can go on a trip to Rome.
