A postcard from Split: Roman legionaries

Greetings from Split

The historic heart of Split is built on and around the ruins of Diocletian’s Palace, the residence and military garrison of the 3rd century Roman emperor. Its remains can be spotted in the foundations of Renaissance palaces, in passageways and side streets, and in a few extant buildings such as the Baptistry which was formerly the Roman Temple of Jupiter. In the small square opposite the cathedral we came across two ‘Roman legionaries’ posing with tourists. Staging such photos doesn’t really appeal to me, but I enjoyed trying to grab a few candid shots, of which this was the most successful.
