Rafael's Roma Vacation Episode VIII - Piazza Navona





Episode VIII


Piazza Navona




Navona廣場是一個典型的巴洛克式廣場,是一個由Caesar Dominziano建於
公元前92年的競技場地,它被稱為藝術家的廣場和“四河噴泉”。

我們看完日本式遊行後,吃了一餐不錯的,可是相當之貴的午飯。
之後在這裡四處拍照,我們認識了一些新的攝影朋友。
我們交換了網站,並繼續環顧四周。

Navona Square is a typical baroque square, was a stadium built by Caesar Dominziano in 92 b.C.
Today it is known as the square of the artists and the "Four Rivers Fountain".

We saw a Japanese parade after having a nice but rather expensive meal here.
After walking around and taking pictures, we met some new photography friends.
We exchanged websites and continued looking around.

  4. To San,
    多謝山哥哥欣賞照片, 食物照都係用24-70mm F2.8L拍的!
    最近對焦為0.38m, 用70mm影都有少少macro效果,而且F2.8的散景真係好靚! ^.^

    Ha ha... Back then, I used to play hide-and-seek in Malaysia with my friends in a cemetery at night!!! We were bored! It was so scary.
    I think I was so crazy that time... I was only 14 something.
