Taken randomly from my flickr account today. Just this morning someone "favorited" this photo I took of the ceiling of the Basilica of San Francesco d'Assisi and I thought I'd share it with you. It was taken in Assisi shortly after the New Year three years ago. I had to add quite a bit of light in post processing. This was in no small part due to the fact that the original was taken without flash and quite surreptitously as I walked out the door! In the original you could see blues and greens but rather dark.
The Basilica, and in particular the ceiling, was badly damaged by an earthquake in 1997. They managed to restore it in record time and the Basilica was reopened only two years later.
Wanderlust and new experiences: DRD4-7R. It's embedded in my DNA, it's not my fault. I've been to all four quadrants on this Globe we call Home... and am very behind on sharing the stories and photos. Stick with me, will you?
