Three Coins In The Fountain by 


Fontana di Trevi

The Trevi Fountain is a fountain in the Trevi district in Rome, Italy. Standing 26.3 meters (86 ft) high and 49.15 meters (161.3 ft) wide, it is the largest Baroque fountain in the city and one of the most famous fountains in the world.

Twice now I have thrown my coins into the fountain and wishes do come true.

A traditional legend holds that if visitors throw a coin into the fountain, they are ensured a return to Rome. This was the theme of 1954’s Three Coins in the Fountain and the Academy Award-winning song by that name which introduced the picture.
An estimated 3,000 euros are thrown into the fountain each day. The money has been used to subsidize a supermarket for Rome’s needy; ] however, there are regular attempts to steal coins from the fountain.

    Beautiful processing Julie! Love the contrasts!

  • So pleased you like this image Robin, I had to wait until the sun was low enough as it has a tendency to blow out the white marble. Thanks for your favour…Jules

    Terrific capture Julie and the B&W is very ideal for the subject matter…definite fave. By the way, your caption would be a great title for an old movie. Talk about showing your age. LOL ♥Ron♥
