Past, present and future
Places like this give us the opportunity to step back and see the big picture, the grand scheme of things. So much time has gone by, and our own little world only resides in a thin and narrow slice of time which will soon be swept away by the future itself.
People of ancient Rome used to go about their daily lives as we do, worrying about the next days problems and trying to distract themselves by the use of entertainment. Created, loved and enjoyed life as we sometimes do, yet all that remains of them now are the decayed and almost obliterated structures they left behind.
