Pantheon, Rome, Italy, photo by John Ecker, Pantheon Photography

PANTHEON, ROME, ITALY: Rome’s Pantheon is my most favourite building in the world.  It radiates strength, beauty and history all the time, day or night.  The perspective in this photograph is mostly missed by visitors as it is taken just inside the massive doors.  With the rush to get in and the push to get out of this popular site, it is easy to miss.  It’s a real treat to be there when a downpour falls into the building from the open oculus.  In 609, the building was consecrated as a Roman Catholic church and named  Sancta Maria ad Martyres.  It remains a church today, a fact that is obviously lost on many visitors.  Shot handheld with a Nikon D70S, 18-55 mm lens at 33mm., f22, 1/60 sec.
