  1. Hi Heidi !! Not so difficult, I think!! You managed to find three very good examples for the theme. I'd like to know where they were all taken. The first one looks familiar, is it in London? The ruins in the second shot are definately of classical Roman style. Beautiful cathedral in the third shot.

    2. Thanks Heidi. Shows how much I don't know!! LOL. I didn't realise there was such a well-preserved Roman temple in France!! There is a place in London, built in neo-classical Roman style, that looks similar to this. I thought the second one was Roman, too, but I guess some Greek and Roman structures can look similar.

  2. I recognised the cathedral in Florence at once. I was there sometime in 1965 and have a photo somewhere of the original doors, before they got swept away by a flood. The other two photos are also very interesting
