THE ETERNAL CITY
Back in 1974, I was on a Med Cruise courtesy of the US Navy, and took a bit of leave while anchored in Naples and took a train up to Rome. While there, I visited the Vatican, and among other things, climbed to the top of St.Peters Basilica. This shot from there is a scan of a 110 slide (1/2 inch) and greatly improved in Corel.
Now while I was thrilled to stand inside the Sistine Chapel, this link will give you a better view than I had at the time- both due to the ability to zoom- and it has been cleaned and restored since I was there!
