Extraordinary!
Picturit: That is the right word, Ray. Short of eyes all the times.
Astrid.
Isn't that amazing! Oh the minds that think this kind of thing up...
Picturit: And remember this is already hundreds of years old....
Astrid.
Now that is just amazing!
Picturit: Don't you love it, I had to touch the floor to feel if it was for real. What a creativity and craftsmanship.
Thank you, Robin.

I assume we are in Venice/ Italy - wonderful details of creativity!
Picturit: Yes we are. This was mind blowing.
Astrid.
I need to go back to my images to find out what church this was in but I'll never forget it. The illusions are fabulous!
Picturit: Thank you, Ginnie. This was one of those churches I wanted to touch everything. Short of eyes too.

Very grand marble too Astrid, the owner must have been very rich
Picturit: Almost everything in Venice is marble... and I keep thinking of the weight and the water and the poles that they had to dig in the sand to make the buildings stand (like Amsterdam and most parts of Hollandshire)
Astrid.
That carpet seems to suit this so well Astrid, but I struggle to find your name. My guess is that you hid it under the carpet.
Picturit: Indeed you are right here, I swept it underneath the carpet when nobody was looking....
Astrid.
Very clever isn't it?
Picturit: Very clever indeed and I admire the craftsmen.

That would have taken some real planning and craftsmanship to maintain patterns on the steps and drapes.
Picturit: This to me is always mindblowing how they did it, knowing that marble is very hard and difficult to work with. AND of course the tools they had back then...
Very fascinating to me.
Astrid.
To me this is true art.
Picturit: To me too. Ginnie and I see churches as museums.
Astrid.
Very clever and atistic isn't it.
Picturit: Very fascinating to us and we see churches as museums.

Astrid.
