I'm rather fond of this pic I took in the Frari (Venice) of Titian's Ascension of the Virgin:
...and these of Rome:
Whoa. Nice Pix.
Also, cool siggy!
Say it ain't so, Joe.
I'm guessing this is part of the pre chill warm up routine. Crazy ! Thanks for sharing...

One of me doing something very stupid:
An 'illegal' pic of San Marco, Venice:
Always amazing pictures on here.
Here's one of the river at Royal Leamington Spa. (We just usually call it Leamington).
Ford's Hospital in Coventry with the plaque underneath.
It's a lovely building, but it's buried in the back streets and surrounded by concrete monsters.
The first one is quite serene with the Willow drooping towards the calm water, the Church rising above the village.
What church btw?
1509 !! The Spanish were just beginning to set foot over here discovering the comparitively crude stone structures of the native inhabitants; "Anasazi", in the southwest.
Thanks for sharing.
Your pictures are amazing Paul, thanks for sharing.
Here are few recent photos of my nieces.
I'm just going to try to upload my pictures again, hope this'll work out.
Both were shot in Italy last summer.
Edit: Since uploading is still not working for me I'll post links to the pictures

So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past - The Great Gatsby
Give every man thine ear, but few thy voice - Polonius (Hamlet)
We're very lucky in Coventry - which is a relatively small city - that we're surrounded by history in the City Centre. Unfortunately it was developed as an industrial city, and so you get these wonderful buildings scattered through the centre and swamped in modern ones. Ford's hospital is on a backstreet with nothing of interest around it.
Here's another gem which sits isolated by the ring road.
This is Cook Street Gate built in 1385. It sits at the top of a small garden, but is virtually unused. I often ride through it as it leads to a path to a bridge I cross on my bike. The whole city was walled until after the Restoration of the Monarchy when the King ordered it pulled down so as not to oppose royal power in future. Coventry was Parliamentarian during the civil war.
The crenellations atop were added later.
