There are so many sculptures and monuments all over the world, but I thought I would re-cycle one I had posted over a year ago from one of my favourite cities. Rome is such a beautiful city. I loved every moment of my time there and look forward to visiting again.
So here is the Colosseum, one of Rome's iconic monuments. This is a monument one has to see to believe. The photograph just does not do it justice.
I had to take 3 pictures and stitch them together - wide angle lens not wide enough and this was way before I owned my first digital camera.
New Zealand is a small country of 4 million people and when one of our athletes win gold, that is truly a moment to pause, savour and remember. On a ratio of population to gold medals I think we did well.
Over the last two weeks we had 5 gold medals and I watched each race live, screaming my head off until I was hoarse. No wonder my throat hurts!
So a "single" picture (I cheat a little) made up of 5 golden moments for New Zealand.
