Orvieto was golden


I stood in awe
and watched the wall turn
golden.
I was there.
Amazed.
Blessed.

  2. The photo you took is breathtaking. I studied in Perugia and my sculpture teacher actually helped build the doors to that very Duomo that you photographed! I learned Bas-Relief from him. His name is Vincenzo Ricci. I remember how beautiful Ovieto was and have done several paintings of it. The entire city seems to rise out of the mist like a little piece of heaven if you are at a distance too. I know you loved it as I do.
