The Pantheon


Ancient yet ageless


Michelangelo is said to have described it as the work of angels not humans.


We drank coffee in the shadow of greatness.


And did a spot of people watching
(and spied a lovely Italian nonna doing the same thing - 3rd building from the left, 4th window down)


I wonder what she was thinking?


We left the heat and crowd and entered the cool interior 


and found more crowds.
 

But oddly it was still 


And incredibly peaceful




 The Pantheon, Rome - July 2015

Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to comment. I do appreciate each and every one and will do my best to reply. I do apologise for the comment moderation I've been forced to put into place thanks to Mr Dark's spamming. It was not so much the spamming that bothered me - it was his appalling grammar.
