The Panthoen, Rome, Italy
Exif:
1/60s f/4.5 ISO 100 18mm
Description:
A souvenir of the Pantheon, I bought while studying abroad in Italy. I held it up toward the oculus of the Pantheon with one hand and took the picture with the other hand. I lined myself up with the light so the lens flare would go from the real oculus to the miniature one.

This is from my 'Souvenirs' series. The real object gets obstructed in the background, while the souvenir remains in focus. Symbolizing the things we take home with us, reminding us of our fading memories.
