Colosseo by Day and Night

Here are a few pictures from the Colosseum… you know… that place in Rome where Russell Crowe killed Joaquin Phoenix? … which reminds me that I really should go watch more Joaquin Phoenix movies… he’s always good, especially when he plays a kinda crazy guy.

Dark Prayers

For whatever reason, I found it sneaky and fun to take pictures of nuns from behind in churches throughout Italy. I now have one with a black habit and a white habit. I look forward to getting the Emperor’s special redguard habit on a future trip. I tried two different DOFs, obviously.

So I decided to paint the ceiling of our bedroom (not)

I don’t do many things around the house, especially when it comes to things like painting, repair, and other silly things, like flushing. So it always impresses me to see someone that takes the time to actually get up and paint the ceiling, because if I were actually to do anything around the house, painting the ceiling would be way down the list (right after flushing).

And so here is another nicely painted ceiling in Rome…

so I decided to paint a mural above my four poster bed (just kidding)

The Grim Reaper Cometh in HDR

Here is a shot from a Roman church, where the side walls are lined with tombs and statues. I found this one to be particularly macabre, and a good subject for HDR.

I also included a few shots from the nearby churches as well.

Padre, another Italian Church in HDR

Here is a church in Rome that I grabbed in HDR. The stained glass came out nicely. If you click on the image beneath it, you can see my entire set called Churches of Italy.
