A snowbird shows photos from southwest Florida and southern New England and other places he goes.
I have visited Peloponesse a few times. I hope to one day take a bike ride around it. Love the Hera temple photo.
Such places make me think and dream a lot.I imagine all people who were there through times, what was their life, the events they saw.. it's always very moving.
These are beautiful Jack.
Taking a break from anything is good.
Beautiful. You're just full of information today. Good stuff, too. And they built to last!
what an amazing trip that was!
What wonderful memories your photos brought to me this morning. My husband and I visited there when he was stationed in Europe and it was very exciting since he had just competed and won a silver medal in the 1962 Olympics Thank you for sharing these, Jack!
This must have been interesting to see in person. I know how I felt walking around the coliseum in Rome.
Wonderful shots, Jack! The age of these places is incredible.
At 2600 years old that temple looks just fine. Don't think the buildings we construct will endure like this. Interesting photos.
Wonderful glimpses into history Jack ..... it's amazing those columns are still standing.
There's nothing like ancient ruins to make one marvel. Gorgeous light and photos. I love seeing places like this!
Great shots. Such a contrast to Hartford. That is what makes traveling so much fun.
Beautiful ruins, Jack.I've dreamed of Greece. I'd love to see it for myself.
How amazing to see such history in person.
It must be wonderful to walk through a place like this and imagine what it would have been like in its day. Nice shots!
Nice shots Jack.
Really like the atmosphere of the back-lit shot. The one day we were in Athens, years ago, the museum workers were on strike and the Parthenon was closed.
It's amazing to be able to visit places like this, isn't it, Jack? Great photos so you can easily remember the visit, too. Neat.About the Goodwill in my post today, that building is a Donation Express, were folks leave things which are then dispersed around the metropolitan area to any number of Goodwill Super Centers, very large stores loaded with lots of stuff for shoppers of all sorts. I love looking and sometimes buying stuff. If one of those big stores was nearby, I'd buy too often, I'm afraid.
Man, you do get out and about. Then Venice and Greece, now N. England. Sounds like you're having fun.
Images such as these really spark the imagination Jack, how wonderful it would be to see this very spot when these ruins were pristine and new!
A lot of history amid those broken columns...
