Pompeii--so very fascinating. Great picture.

Oh, fascinating indeed!! And what a terrific capture, JM!! It is indeed like stepping back in time!

Great the way you have captured the narrow street with the wheel channels for the chariots. I guess anyone on foot would have to jump ito an alcove when they rolled down the road.

It is a long time since I was last there. It also seems a long time since I had a working computer. I cannot even post on this old elephant.

When I saw the pic I thought it looks like ancient Roma and it is. MB

79 C.E.? Amazing. I'm going to just sit and stare at this for a time. I can picture people walking along this stone lane. So long ago!
