Photo cliches: Where for art thou?
Photo Competition: Cliched travel snaps
In our latest Canon photo competition, we're looking for travel cliches you've snapped around the world. Anna Adams had many to choose from after a trip to Italy.
My first trip to Italy in 2011 was filled with cliched travel photos including holding up the leaning tower and I also tried the short-lived internet sensation of planking on the stepping stones of Pompeii streets, so I had a hard choice in choosing which photo to submit.
In the city of Verona in the north of Italy thousands of young lovers and singles wishing for love flock to a famed house, the alleged home of the Capulets. It was thought that here on this very balcony a young maiden called for her one true love...Romeo, Romeo, where for art thou Romeo?
The courtyard of the home houses a bronze statue of Juliet in which the masses line up waiting to pose with her while touching her breast - said to grant you good luck in love - but we didn't want to part with ten euros to actually enter the house so I thought a much better momento photo of the visit could be taken posing on the balcony.
Have you taken an unashamedly cliched travel photo? Send us the evidence and you could win a camera. To enter the competition hit the big green button.
