cavi

All sorts of cables






Via Cavour is a wide avenue that runs from the Termini train station all the way downhill through the Suburra, ending on via dei Fori Imperiali, by the Colosseum. As you can see by the intricate web of cables, a tram runs from the top, curving to the right. I liked the geometry of all the different intersecting lines in this shot. The late afternoon sunlight suits the tall palazzi at this hour of the day.

  1. The cable lines are like strands of a web that connect the buildings, and keep the trams running.

  6. Late afternoon sunlight on umber facades is always a beautiful thing. I, too, like the geometry of this photo.

  7. So nice to see that you found inspiration in geometry, Nora:) In fact math forms our life.
    Btw, I enjoyed your post about the pearl of Amalfi coast, Positano. I think time has come to travel...:)

    Ci sentiamo.

  8. Intriguing! :-)

    Have you ever wondered why Via Cavour and Piazza Cavour are in different quartieri?
