  4. Hi Heidi, very impressive ancient and old architecture. Wonderful picture of the Roman ruins, I hope I can get there someday. I hadn't know the name of the Medieval architecture, love the light coming through the arch. Lovely SF gazebo, but my favorite is the shot of the French village. It's intriguing with the doorways and stone walkway, and the man makes the shot.

  5. Some interesting contrasts. The Romans were OK and left us a few interesting monuments.I am reading a novel entered in the early middle ages concerning some architects and it is interesting the angles and construction tricks they had to apply that everything didn't collapse. Interesting building in SF and we have a few similar streets to the last photo in some Swiss old towns.

  7. Hi Heidi !! Great shots for Benni's theme. The first shot is kinda spooky. It looks like a double-exposure, as you can see through the people in the shot. The architectural style in the second shot is very impressive. Lovely shot of the SF expo. My fave shot is the last one, I love those old stone buildings.
