I loved taking this photo of the graffiti at Juliet's Balcony (Casa di Giulietta) in Verona late last year. It was taken on my phone with the Tilt Shift Generator App - the blurred the effect it creates is fantastic.

Even though Juliet's balcony isn't real and was set up as a tourist attraction it has become a symbol of love with thousands of tourists visiting every year...... if you can't get to Verona you could watch the movie "Letters to Juliet" (2010) starring Amanda Seyfried, Gael Garcia Bernal and Vanessa Redgrave.

Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare is the story of two star crossed lovers - and you can at a stretch imagine Juliet standing on her balcony in Verona........

"O Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art thou Romeo" William Shakespeare Romeo and Juliet, 2.2
