Bahadir, it is always a good day when I get the chance to view the beautiful shots & read your exquisite words. I can never decide which is more interesting ... your captures of ancient structures, landscapes, & seascapes or your poetic words of yore. How nice it must be to be able to explore such age-old structures. Here, if a building is more than 20years old, it's ruled a disaster & leveled but of course, noone builds anything of quality anymore. Certainly, not to last for 1800 years or more! When I (an Illinois farmboy) got the chance to go to Ireland, I was so overwhelmed with these ruins that are hundreds & hundreds of years old & these structures, no matter how dilapidated, show more character than any of these "cookie cutter" buildings here in the States. I know, I know ... the grass is always greener ... right, Bahadir?

Ron, you actually made my day! I think I occasionally capture beautiful thingswhich I amdoubly happy to share withmymates hereSo, your presence is a great incentive making me rememberto take my camera almost always with me as I leave home...Meanwhile I should also mention that Ihave tried not to miss a Westernfilm on Tv since my childhood andmyarchive has alwayscompriseda considerable amount of country music!Inevitably,I enjoyseeing captures here like Old Jim's Urbanization which makes a lot of sense to me

Great picture. I, too am surprised at the condition of the buildings. Roman structures weren't always beautiful, but they were built to last.

Barbarian, thanks a lot for your kind expertise Indeed, Romans, who introduced apartment blocks as we know today, were great at civil engineering,and theirpriority was the scale which meant grandeur!
