A gaggle of horse drawn carriages outside the Colosseum in Rome, Italy.

The Arch of Costantine can be seen in the background. Among the oldest of Rome’s mouments, the Arch of Constantine was erected to commemorate the victory of the emperor over Massenzio, in the battle of 312 a.D. at Ponte Milvio.

Almost 25 meters high, it has three arched passageways, mostly decorated by ornaments taken from other buildings, such as the monuments of Trajan, Marcus Aurelius, Domiziano, Hadrian, and Commodo.

    If you pretend they could be chariots. I am amazed someone hasn’t thought of that. This is a great shot of the very old world and the new world. great capture. Wonderful buildings. Great composition.
