A true assessment on the prevalence of empires of the ancient times, Sury, they rose on the shoulders of those whose freedoms were removed and existences exploited, due to strange social norms and laws.

Your Mediterranean Cruise was pleasant to observe. Thanks for sharing.

Re: Sorrento, Pompeii, Italy

. You're right, Sury. I remember reading how archeologists were both very surprised and faced personal moral and occupational challenges when they had to document and publish their findings which they dug from under 25 mt. deep ash layer. Brutal times for slaves of Roman ages but not very different ...

Re: Rhine Cruise

. Hi, Ossie; :) Good to see your lovely photos in the forum yet again. River Rhine certainly provides some spectacular land pieces and pitched-roofed, old, Central European structures. It's good to see Cologne Cathedral again, like seeing a good old friend. :) I first saw and walked through its fron...

Re: Sorrento, Pompeii, Italy

. Hi, Sury; :) Those chariot wheels' sure left enduring track marks! Romans were such good builders in an innovative way and they left lasting roads, standing health spa baths and so many structures were excellently built by the engineers of that era. :) I always admired how smart they were in appro...

Re: Sorrento, Pompeii, Italy

. Hi, Sury; :) I like the frescos that depict the kind of daily life or deities of sorts; very colourful and how interesting it must have been spending time in these rooms and maybe courtyards which probably had peafowl and other spectacular animal specimens as we witness from the fresco depictions....

Re: Sorrento, Pompeii, Italy

Sorrento certainly has a different setting, the town being located on top of a flat terrain, bordered by a cliff which opens it to vistas all around. The whole town has a view in all directions. Not boring at all. :) Always a boat or a ship in view or anchoring…. over-crowded with concrete buildings...

Great places, Sury. :D And, majestic Vesuvius bears an unforgettable history to its lifetime, in the name of the destruction of Pompeii, which maybe you also saw a few sites of?

Re: Sorrento, Pompeii, Italy

. Very intricate detailing indeed. They must be working exquisitely for such fine cuts to come out unbroken and intact. The bird is a master's work. :) Neat illustration. Glad people still accommodate patience and are fine with taking things slowly and day by day. But it's Italy and that's still pop...

It's beginning to look like Starry Night by Van Gogh! Getting there! :D
Nicely captured and processed, Sury. JBTaylor covered the technical aspects of the frames and I have nothing to say in that respect and I'm glad I know more for it right now. :)

Re: Sorrento, Pompeii, Italy

Hi, Sury, :) Starting with #3; I don't know if the craftsmen have integrated laser cutting or CNC for the productions but the inlay details are mind boggling for the amount of precision. Very good pieces of work! :D #2; I loved seeing some silver-tinted olive trees (I hope) and the human-constructed...

Indeed, Sury.
The study of the human body and transformation of it all into stone is phenomenal.
