Cloisters


San Zeno Cathedral. The cloisters are a stunning structure on the side of the Cathedral. Walking along you can see old tombstones, bits of mural painting, marble plates engraved with latin words. It's so silent here: a perfect place for walking and reflecting...

If memory serves me correctly from a too-brief visit to Verona several years ago, the San Zeno Cathedral has one of the most unusual and dramatic paintings of the cruxifixtion that I have ever seen. It is from the perspective of standing underneath the cross and looking stright up

Wow, Valeria, the black&White is perfect for this photo. You can almost "feel" the silence and the peace. Brava! Ma dove trovi il tempo? Ciao. A.

Valeria,
You are such a talented photographer! This is a beautiful shot. Very emotional.
By the way, sewing is not hard. Get out that sewing machine and start with something simple. I took classes in the 7th grade but taught myself everything else. Someone who is so creative as you could do wonderful things with a sewing machine (especially for that cute little girl of yours.)

Cloisters are always so beautiful and the one you capture here is no exception!

This photo resembles The Cloister, an old church that has been turned into a museum in NYC. It has the same type of arches and internal courtyard.

I will have to go and take some photos so I can post it on my blog.
