Shine a little light – The Pantheon, Rome July 2011

The Pantheon is one of my favourite buildings in the world and one of the oldest in Rome, astonishingly having been built in its current form in the first century AD.  It is still the largest masonry dome in the world. The open oculus at the top absolutely fascinates me and the changing sunlight makes the interior change by the hour.  There is no finer place on earth to marvel at the Roman civilisation.

    I still can’t get my head around the oculus – how doesn’t it rain through it….? It is an amazing building. Can’t believe I used to walk by it casually for most of my year in Rome and only went in a handful of times.. but then I was just 20 and more interested in ‘real life’!
