Caught by another “spectator’s” camera, visitors observe, enjoy, or ignore their surroundings — one of the world’s most infamous, yet beloved structures. The camera shows us odd angles and what is not usually revealed.

As an afternoon visit unfolds, the structure proves to be a vantage point for tourists to experience what is within as well as to view what is outside. Sounds of the modern city beyond intrude and other observers, airplanes and birds, become evident. Meanwhile, the memory of spectators of antiquity and what they witnessed casts a shadow.
