The Termini is the main train station of Rome. It's worth visiting, even if you aren't catching a train. There's an art gallery, rebuilt since our visit, and some very interesting shops. One is Aquastore, a boutique selling only bottled water, an unbelievable collection and a wide range of prices.

The art gallery, on the mezzanine level, had an interesting contemporary exhibit when we visited. It wasn't very crowded (Who goes to the train station to see art?).

From the mezzanine, us curious folk decided to go outside directly, instead of back down to the main level, the way we had come. And this is what we found on the balcony. This interesting series of arches is another fascinating architectural detail, hidden away in a city that can trace its architecture back more than two thousand years.

So I framed the scene as carefully as possible to catch the arches receding into infinity. The picture was later cropped to show just the arches. Finally, some work on color, brightness, and contrast.
