I can't believe they let you walk on the roof! That's amazing; what a special experience. Once of the great sources of sadness in my life is that when I went to Europe, digital cameras weren't really invented yet and so all of my cathedral photos are trapped in film. I love yours!
The amount of intricate detail was unbelievable, particularly considering that it probably wasn't originally supposed to be seen (that's my assumption at least, it is the roof after all). They now have open air concerts up there occasionally which would be magnificent.I know what you mean about film, all of our wedding and honeymoon photos are pre-digital (okay, that makes me sound really old ...) and I'd love to convert them so I can do something with them.
That second photo took my breath away!!
Thanks Hannah, it was really quite a breathtaking experience. To give some perspective to how high up we were, the sixth and seventh photos were taken half way up (the first photo also gives a bit of an idea of how high the roof is).
You are quite a photographer. I think I would be scared stiff walking on the roof.
Thank you. It took me a bit of time to get near the edge - I was fine as long as I couldn't tell how high up I was!
No need words with such breath taking shots of a beautiful city! Good job!
Cheers! Normally I would defer to The Sparky's brilliance when it comes to our holiday photos but I am actually responsible for most of these ones so I will take the compliment and keep it as my very own :) Mind you, it's not hard when you have such a great subject.
Thanks, they were stunning buildings.
Lovely photos there! They really display the majesty of the buildings!
Lorraine, thank you! The Duomo in particular was an unbelievably artistic piece of architecture.
