Rafael's Roma Vacation Episode IV - Republic Square




Episode IV


Republic Square



Republic Square (Piazza della Repubblica)是個有女神雕像噴泉的廣場,是Mario Rutelli的作品。
我在旅程的第2天來到這裡,我真的很幸運,因為我看到並接觸到雪,
在這裡更第一次看到落雪。這對我來說是一個奇妙的經歷!
我拍了許多照片,看著很多人在雪地裡玩。

Republic Square (Piazza della Repubblica) with the fountain of the nymphs, is the work of Mario Rutelli.
 I visited it on the 2nd day of my trip, and I was really lucky because I saw and touched the snowing,
 for the first time here. It was a magical experience for me!
I took many pictures and watched many people playing in the snow.

    特別係本來上兩次去QUEENSTOWN同北京咁凍諗住落雪點知都冇...

  6. 因為估唔到會落大雪, 所以太開心都忘記了冷的感覺,
    當時都有好多人拍照, 還有小朋友興奮大叫,
    不過可能當時太興奮有點亂拍... 拍唔到應有的氣氛和美感...
    希望再有機會看到落雪! ^.^

  13. It's so good to see snow in Rome.
    When I was there it was very, very hot!
    But it was also very cheap because all local people left the capital to have their holidays elsewhere.

    Did you go inside the cathedral opposite the fountain (Photo 1)?
    It was really wide in there, so was I remembered...

  15. To London Caller,
    I think you choose a right time to go Rome,
    I'm only lucky can see snow on February in Rome...

    Yes, I went to the cathedral in the centre of Republic Square,
    it called Santa Maria degli Angeli basilica,
    the interior is really awesome!
    I will share the photos in the next post! ^.^

    Haha, I think the gweilou caishen wins acceptance in the CNY event! ^.^

  16. Yes ar Ristinw, this journey was unforgettable!
    My 450D and 5D mark II can use normally in snow,
    but all the photos of this post were taken with
    5D mark II + 24-70 F2.8L, because this combination is against dust and water! ^.^

  17. snowfall.... yea was wondering what about ur camera... i like pic 17 & 22 best!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Ha ha ha... You're right. That Gwailou Caishen was so popular that day. Everybody wanted to have their photos taken with him! The queue was so long!

    Oh yes, that's right, "Santa Maria degli Angeli basilica" Now, I remember, that was a special angel sculpture in the aisle. When I was there in the afternoon, I saw light beaming down from the roof on the angel's face. It was so magical!

  19. To lechua,
    Thanks, as I told Ristinw, the 450D and 5D mark II can use normally,
    may be wasn't really cold there... I was so lucky!

  23. 親身經驗所得,下雪是很煩人的,但你拍的下雪照片令我回想下雪其實也好玩的呢!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Thanks Ryan, 下雪對於攝影愛好者來講一定係美妙多於煩人了! ^.^
    最緊要小心濕滑和保護攝影器材...
    你的攝影Blog都非常好, 我有時間會再去看看的! ^.^

  25. 從未想過下雪時, 要用雨傘啊, 否則怎擋住大雪呢,maymay很傻啊. 住在南方的我們, 對於下雪, 份外興奮.
    你每次的旅程, 總是給我們驚喜!好開心認識到你!

    ReplyDelete
  26. 其實我一直都覺得玩雪唔應該用雨傘的, 不過一定會成身濕哂,
    希望再有機會睇到落雪啦, 第一次見落一雪感覺實在太奇妙!
    maymay去既地方同影既相都好靚, 我都覺得識到妳好幸運! ^.^
