The lines below by Poe werea hymn I murmured as I roamed about the temple...and tookthe photos to be HDR(ed) the very night!

''Here, where a hero fell, a column falls!




Here, where the mimic eagle glared in gold,
A midnight vigil holds the swarthy bat!




Here, where the dames of Rome their gilded hair
Waved to the wind, now wave the reed and thistle!





Here, where on golden throne the monarch lolled,
Glides, spectre-like, unto his marble home,





Lit by the wan light of the horned moon,
The swift and silent lizard of the stones!





But stay! these walls- these ivy-clad arcades-
These moldering plinths- these sad and blackened shafts-
These vague entablatures- this crumbling frieze-
These shattered cornices- this wreck- this ruin-
These stones- alas! these grey stones- are they all-
All of the famed, and the colossal left
By the corrosive Hours to Fate and me?''


...and as it was time to leave, dear friends,the lethean odour from the oleander by the road lead me to a bath at the ancient harbour whose water had already turned to colour of wine !

Bahadir - Very nice indeed. The first picture especially looks so warm and inviting that it makes me wish I lived there.

It's a sad feeling, looking at those stones, and imagining what it must have once been, and meant to so many people, none of whom we even know about.

A beautiful series, and a very appropriate narration. Thank you, my friend.

Happy to read yourinsightful comment, my friend...I see Imanaged to share my sweet:!: melancholy (which I takeintensification of delicate feelings)with the kindred spirits here.

Oh, strolling all over the site, howI strongly felt that we actually live depending on the dreams of the long forgotten individual dwellers of this site...
