Technically, there’s nothing special about this photo, taken in Rome – but I do enjoy the clay-like colour and the uneven textures

I took this photo in a Devonshire sculpture garden. Ironically, I thought this was more beautiful than any surrounding artwork.

Completely by chance, I happened to take this photo at just the right angle to get the whole of the photography shop’s sign.

I took this photo on the bus on the way to Rome. In the right-hand corner, you can just see the reflection of the bus’s curtain.

How tasty does this pizza look? I was genuinely surprised at how much detail my camera (Canon 400D) managed to capture.

Torso del Belvedere

This photo was taken inside the Vatican’s Museo Pio-Clementino. The figure, apparently, is Hercules, seated on animal skin.

I took this photo in Rome’s main shopping district. I hope you agree with me when I say the reflection gives it decent depth.

Museo de Sorolla

I took this photo in Museo Sorolla, the house of the Spanish modernist painter Joaquín Sorolla. I like the stark contrast of light.
