The arena of the gladiators. A full of death history of human and animals.
The Flavian Amphitheater, better known as Colosseum, is the largest elliptical amphitheater ever built in the Roman Empire. It’s construction started at 70 AD and finished in 80 AD by the emperor Titus. The Colosseum was used for gladiatorial contests and public spectacles. Gladiators, Christians and even animals fought to death in the arena, they say that about 500.00 people and more than a million wild animals died in the Colosseum.
This is an amazing place, full of history. When you enter to the Colosseum you can’t avoid thinking of the people who fought here “entertaining” the Romans, and then you remember the Hollywood point of view and then you say mmm it had to be something like that. I think this is my favorite spot of Rome, the day i arrived the city i decided to take a walk to the Colosseum, so i started to walk by streets with no more than buildings when suddenly i saw it!… It appears in front of you, gigantic, elegant, beautiful…love it!

This is a tribute to one of the most famous French social and street photographers, Robert Doisneau.

The 2015 UEFA Champions League Final will be held at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin on June 6. It is a place full of history and is also the only football stadium with a blue track course. Some say it is the most beautiful stadium in the world, and I totally agree with them. But then agai,n I might be biased because it is the home court of my favorite team, Hertha BSC Berlin—my blue-white bloodline.

My name is Amber Valentine and I have a confession to make: I’m not really a photographer. I have a website full of photographs, a bookshelf full of cameras, film waiting to be developed, and a wall full of framed pictures I’ve taken. Even so, I don’t really consider myself a photographer per se. I think that Lomography is more about the experimentation and the fun of film than it is about the photography, and that experimentation is part of the reason I have embraced Lomography so.
