Perspective in Bologna

While we were traveling last week I did a little project of my own. I found some old paintings in what use to be the main building for the University of Bologna. They were done in the seventeenth century or so and showed various scenes from around the city and inside the buildings. I took pictures of the paintings and then set out to find the exact spots in the city that the artist had viewed these scenes from to take pictures from there. Only one turned out relatively decent, or close, but it was still a fun way to explore the city.....

HA! I knew you'd pick out the MINI! I only noticed while I was posting that the horse carriage in the old painting is replaced by a mini cooper in my photo.

I love that way of bringing the past forward to the future, and what better place to do it than in old Rome.
