Explosion in Rome Sparked Panic

12 05 2017

An explosion that had damaged a car in a nearby car park had sparked panic among workers at the Poste Italiane office in the Aventino neighbourhood today.

So far, no injuries were reported.

The Independent reported that police believe the explosion was an “act of protest” but the target was unclear.

It is also reported that the homemade devices used flammable liquid and were placed between cars in a car park in Via Marmorata, which links the River Tiber with the Pyramid of Caius Cestius in central Rome.

Daily Express reported that, “A secondary bomb alert had been issued for the Piazza di Porta Capena – just streets away from the UN’s Food and Agriculture Headquarters – police and bomb disposal experts were deployed but have since been stood down and the incident deemed a false alarm”.

Richard Silver’s photos of the world’s biggest sights are special because he uses artistic visual constructions like the combinations of sharpness and blur.

He wrote that, “By employing techniques such as Tilt Shift, HDR, Vertical Panoramas and Time Slice, this allows me to grow as a photographer while exposing our everyday world in an altered visual context.”

Silver says:

“People always ask me, How do I make people look so small or why do I make people look so small? Simple, WE ARE. In the big picture we are just a small blip of what the world truly is. I enjoy the power I have to change the perspective of the way people look at the world and maybe at themselves.”
