Weekly Photo Challenge: Lost in the Details

When I was in Rome I climbed the steps of St. Peter’s Basilica to the top for a view of the city.  Along the way I stopped and saw these tiles.  After taking a picture of one of the scenes I thought it would be interesting to focus on one of the corners to show the tiles in detail.

  3. And good timing of the Basilica photos. Excellent choice. I like how you illustrated the progression of the detail photo. I had a hard time with this challenge, doing it well.
    Yours is perfect.

  7. Beautiful tiles-often imagined as totally perfect, upon inspection, reveals the imperfections of the sizes of them and how they altogether equal perfection.

  10. Hi Meg – great you’ve captured the texture of the whole as well as the colours through the detail. Love the tactile sense of the mosaic as well – just invites you to draw a hand across the surface.

  12. WOW….. This is fantastic – As I love mosaic I can see the quality in this work and such great photos as well, Meg – Thank you for sharing

  13. Ahh, reminds me of my visit to Rome a few years ago. What a beautiful city and it was an experience I’ll never forget. I stayed at a great hostel where the owner sat down with guests and told us about the great non-tourist spots to go. It was amazing to view such a magnificent city through the eyes of a local. Great photos!

    • Thank you – I really appreciate it :) I couldn’t believe how close I was to these tiles and I thought it would be interesting to remember the delicacy of the pattern!
