Wonderful window!

Those 8 blokes look like they are having a good time...I suppose its good to have a break from the whole crew occasionally...and that Judas is a bit too full-on...
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Well yes- hanging around for a couple thousand years... ya gotta get a little campy!

Beautiful picture. Love the architecture. Must have been very impressive.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Astrid! It was very, very impressive. Difficult to photograph with the glarey / hazy light and millions of people!
This is Italian Gothic at its finest, I do like that green shade of stone.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I thought the green and pink were really lovely!

A superb building that is so difficult to photograph from street level, so many people and difficult to get far enough back from it also. Would have loved to have seen it from another building or rooftop.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: So true John - I considered climbing Giottos Bell Tower to photograph the Cupola- but after climbing the Cupola... I was poopala!

Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Not a chance! We've lost our ability and patience!
