Ponte Sant’Angelo

Posted on Mar 16, 2011 | 9 comments

Built in Roman times and used for centuries by pilgrims to cross over the Tiber River toward the Vatican, the Ponte Sant’Angelo takes on a magical quality at night. The whole hodge podge of Roman culture (Roman era bridge/Baroque era sculpture) once again rears its head when dissecting the bridge. This weekend, on a fairly clear night, I was passing by the bridge and couldn’t resist photographing one of the lovely angels that dot the railings. Designed by Bernini, there is a delicate flow to the cloth that swathes their bodies. I noticed the moon up above and wondered it I’d be able to capture both the moon and the angel in one shot. Voila’…..this photo was born. Aside from the composition, I was quite happy with the crisp black and white contrast.
