The Weekend in Black and White


When the sun is in a position to stream through
the oculus of the Pantheon in Rome like
this, it's a time of day when you're likely to have
lots of company.  But just look up and you can
almost feel like you're alone in this incredible place
—and it could be any time in the past +/- 2,000(!) years.

  1. Wow, I hadn't seen your new layout (I haven't been blogging that much lately).
    Good picture too the Rome one.
    One question for you.Do the pins on the map mean something or is it just a picture composition?
