Back in November 2016, my Fiancée and I headed to the Pompeii Excavation Site. I had been here when I was 15, back in 2005, but they’ve opened up SO MUCH more of the site since - I wasn’t prepared for the huge walk around the site haha, very warm day too. I’ve used one of Annie Spratt’s presets to give this photo a bit of extra depth, looks pretty good I think!
