Thank you everyone for your supporting comments! You are the best!
Eleanore - I was standing across the street. I believe it was a church parking lot or some kind of park. I had to walk up several steps and then I placed the tripod on the concrete ledge for a long exposure shot. #9315185

Hi Janet

I am so sorry I have not seen your pictures for a while. I love all you do. This is just outstading. There are not many p[ictures of the Coleseum like this. I am still struggling to use a tripod.I am so jealous of you a Christopher for knowing each other. How I would love to have 2 phtographers like you and him as my friends. #9944457
