The BullfighterI arrived in Nimes a the day before the Sting concert, and I wanted to get a few shots of the old city right away. The weather and light cooperated! Maybe this is the best preserved Roman coliseum in the world? I don't know that for sure, but it's the best one I have seen. And, even better, it's still in good enough shape that they use it for concerts, bullfights, and even swimming events! In front of the coliseum is this grand bullfighter. It's kind of the main "meeting place" for many people in this area, so I had to be extremely patient waiting for people to clear the area so I could get a shot! - Trey Ratcliff Read more here at the Stuck in Customs blog.
