The Pantheon by JonnyGoodboy The Pantheon by JonnyGoodboy
Very inspirational place with awe-inspiring interior :wow:

Got talking to an American guy there who was kind enough to let me play with his 8mm fisheye :fish: for a few minutes :eager:
We never did exchange names or websites but if by chance you happen to parade upon my lil spot on the web here,I thank you very much again for your generosity my friend,was a pleasure :salute:


Thank you all for looking & supporting....Big Wednesday! :boogie:


The Pantheon
Originally a temple for all pagan gods, the temple was converted into a church in 609.
The Pantheon contains the tombs of Raphael and of several Italian Kings.

Loving the fisheye!

Just sent a request to you asking if this could be added to the gallery of a new group, Ancient Roman Photos ([link]).

I would love to invite your to join our new group and submit any other photos you may have of Ancient Roman stuff. There's no submission limit so contribute as much as you like, if you're interested.

Cheers,
Wendy

...and for centuries it was one of the widest domes whith a width of about 52 meter - unparalleld in the ancient and medievale world (except for the Hagia Sophia in Constantinople). Actually the Pantheon you managed to capture so amazingly as you always do, is the third of it´s kind (being built by Agrippa). It´s two predecessors coulnd´t bear the weight and collapsed soon after being erected. "Trial and error" I guess they call that principle ... ;-)

Hi, Jonathan !!!
This is so impressive... I got dizzy when looking at the full view...! :faint: One must for sure feel really small in this building...it´s so majestic and huge!

Called my attention how the sun filters through the top to touch the wall up ahead. And I won´t ask you if those little openings (like windows) had inscriptions, because it seems to me they do. However, I wonder if that had some significance in particular.

Were you able to take some closeup shots of the wall details and columns ? They seem to be incredible architectonic pieces, also !

Congratulations on this one :nod: as usual, your photography is incredible !!

Thank you m`dear M for the wonderful comments again :cuddle:
I`ve seen some shots where you have some awe-inspiring sun rays filtering through that ceiling but it was too direct to give me that effect on this day (but I do have another interior of the Vatican that captures it well that I`ll submit soon ).

I didn`t take any close-ups here btw,my Girl usually excels at such shots (but she didn`t take her cam) while I prefer to capture the bigger picture ;p

You should have lent her your camera! :rofl:
(I know, I know... she must have special lenses for her shots and it would not be the same, probably!) :aww:

I am always looking forward to your next photo... I apologize that it takes me a while to get there, usually... I will have to reduce the number of deviations I receive, but I keep forgetting to do that !

Nay apologies m`lovely,we all have lots to do outside of DA,just pop in and do whatever you want when you feel like it,I don`t judge people who can`t be here as much as they`d like :hug:

BTW,she did grab the cam to take many shots,99% of which were of me though :flirty:
