Weekly Photo Challenge: Abandon


This weeks photo challenge, abandon, has me thinking a lot of my visit to Italy. What better way to show abandon through pictures, than Italian ruins.

Most of these pictures were taken while I was in Rome, but the rest were taken either in Naples or on my way to Rome; there’s even a picture of the leaning tower of Pisa.

This is where they did chariot races as seen in the movie Ben Hur.

I could be wrong, but I think this was Nero’s palace. It is located right next to the Colosseum.

Image

Same as the picture above. If someone knows what this is, please let me know. It has been 13 years since I visited Italy.
