An early morning walk along the Tiber River to meet my tour guide.
St Peter’s Square
A garden view of the dome of St. Peter’s Basilica
The long halls of the Vatican – artwork was done by a collection of “minor” artists.
And just one more picture of a long hall. But there were many in the Pope’s house.
And another long hall . . .
The Original Bramante Staircase – which isn’t really a staircase at all! Built in 1505, it was designed to allow Pope Julius II to arrive at his private penthouse residence without getting out of his carriage.
The Thinker – originally named The Poet
The Sistine Chapel. This photo is a bit blurry as it was literally “shot from the hip” as photography was strictly forbidden. It’s a wonder I didn’t get condemned to Hell right then and there. Michelangelo was a genius!
I have had the thirst for adventure and travel my whole life. Recently I took up photography to capture some of the beautiful places, special moments and wonderful
people in my life.
