Zorba: wow, that picture looks like something straight off the set of a "raiders of the lost ark" type movie. Very neat example of how "impermanent" man-made structures are. Love how "mother nature" has taken over the place.
JediP: Beautiful! (not sure I'd want my ceilings to be that way though - can't imagine having to build scaffolding every year to do spring cleaning LOL)
DotB: no need to apologize. If they used glass "from the period", I'm surprised you got THAT clear of an image! Love the book on the table - judging by the size of it, I presume it's a Bible?
Somebody should tell us, right at the start of our lives, that we are dying. Then we might live life to the limit, every minute of every day. Do it! I say. Whatever you want to do, do it now! There are only so many tomorrows.
