Ruins of Pompeii

Here are the ruins of Pompeii, which is spelled Pompei half the time so I am never sure how to spell it here… but anyway, here they are:

Blue Skies of Pompeii

Coast of Italy

Here is a shot I took from the plane. I thought that natural swirl was kind of interesting.

Daily Photo – This is Nathaniel

Nathaniel’s dream is to get closer to God and to make sure his mom is happy.

Nathaniel is currently four years old and carrying wood with his two sisters down a dusty cart-road in an unmarked Amish village somewhere between Allegheny and Tionesta, Pennsylvania. In pauses between talking to me, he looks sideways at his older sisters, who peacefully nod towards him. I tell him that he looks big and strong and then I help him carry the wood to his parents’ home, where he lives with his other nine brothers and sisters.

Churches of Italy

I have compiled all my church pictures into a set on Flickr called “Churches of Italy” that you can get to from my Flickr page… Here are a few new ones that I uploaded:

The Exorcism

Three Steps in the Duomo

Ancient Roman Ruins at night

The Ruins after Dark

Diving from the Ruins

If you zoom into the full size of this one, you can see that crazy dude diving into the Bay of Naples from some old ruins.

Evening in Europe

Here are the Navigli Canals in Milan.

This is a statue in the Museum of Archeology in Naples. It comes from Rome in the baths of Caracalla. This is one of the treasures that Napoleon regretted that he never took back to Paris.


Front Page of Flickr

I see “This is Ahmed” made it to the front page of Flickr… they have a very strange formula on there that automatically finds the most “interesting” pictures; I suppose this hit whatever it was looking for, although it is still a mystery to me. I am mostly glad this guy did not punch me in the face while I was taking his picture while humming the Star Spangled Banner.
