Picturit: Almost nothing, Frank.... a very dull place grin... Man alive, they can lock me up in such place and I would not know.

I love those angles, Astrid.
Picturit: These are fresco's. I always love the colours. Somebody explained that colours of a fresco don't fade.
Astrid.
Beautiful images, Astrid! The tones and light are wonderful - and I love the details!!
Picturit: Thank you kindly, Elizabeth. A wonderful place to visit.
Astrid.

a wonderful Cathedral, you cannot get short of seeing!
Picturit: One of the places they can lock me up and I would not notice...
Astrid.
You've brought back so many memories with all these images, Astrid. Mary will love them.
Picturit: Thank you, Ginnie. Mary indeed loves them and it was a wonderful place. Too bad we were on a dead line.... but we made the most of it.

They really do go in for elaborate carving, don't they Astrid!
Picturit: That was just mind blowing and each time I saw more and more.
Astrid.
Totally OTT but what craftsmanship!!
Picturit: These places are our museums, Bill. It is amazing what they could make back in those days.

A funny title Astrid. I like the painting of the angels holding back the curtains.
Picturit: I know, I am fascinated by all those "sleeping" dead people.... and to be honest I could not think of something better.
Those frescos are just amazing.

Oh wat is dáár veel moois te zien.
Hoe langer je kijkt, hoe meer je ziet.
Picturit: Marjolein, het was daar prachtig en er was zoveel moois te zien. De fresco's zijn echt prachtig.
Ogen te kort....

I spent so much time looking at the first picture then WOW!
This has to be the most adorned per square inch of any cathedral. Thanks, Astrid. This is truly awe producing.
Picturit: Mary, this was just amazing and everything is so beautiful, so much to see in such a short time, but we were happy with every minute spent there.
Astrid.
What a magnificent cathedral this is, the opening picture is amazing, and then comes all this other lovely artwork.
Picturit: Thank you, Brian. I did some extra pictures in for Mary. It just is an amazing place.

Lots of statues and paintings in that church. No chance to become bored during the sermon.
Picturit: Never a dull moment, Louis. And I think that many people will have problems keeping their mind with the sermon ......
Astrid.
I am impressed and fascinated by the amazing, incredible details you have captured here.
Picturit: Thank you, Ruthie. It was my pleasure. Normally I never post so many pictures in one time, but now it make more one big picture. It is an amazing place,
Astrid.
You've really done this amazing Cathedral justice with these incredible images, Astrid.
Picturit: Thank you kindly, Beverly. It was an amazing place, short of eyes, that is for sure.
Astrid.
WOW ! Astride... what a magnificent presentation of all the sculptures in the Cathedral of Pisa in the Field of Miracles....petersmile
Picturit: It was a joy it was ti be there. We had to look for shelter for the horrendous weather too, we were maybe the only ones who first went all around and then inside.
Astrid.
That's REALLY over the top, isn't it! smile
Picturit: Absolutely and that it the beauty of it, Tom smile
Astrid.
wnderful shots, Astrid. i especially like the one of the eagle with wings spread and head looking to one side. and the whole place is stacked with sculptures!
Picturit: It was almost too much for the short time we were inside, but at least we got the gist of it, Ayush. It is a wonderful place.

Such fabulous carvings. I dread to think of the hundreds of hours that have gone in to these.
Picturit: I often think of all the hours they put into this kind of art work, Alan. Hour after hour, day after day and year after year...... but then, what else was there to do. No Tour de France, No Wimbledon, No Facebook.... that is already 24 hours of the day wink....
Thank you, Alan.
