Ornate: WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge

The WordPress Photo Challenge this week is ORNATE.

As the prompt on The Daily Post says:

Forget about subdued and restrained. This week, let’s embrace the breathtakingly extravagant.

It so happens that self is in Italy. Which gives her many examples of the ornate, like this church and fountain in the city of Pisa:

The Duomo of Pisa

Pisa: Cathedral and Fountain

The tour guide says this is an example of Romanesque architecture. Therefore, ornate.

The Duomo of Pisa: It IS pretty.

The Duomo of Pisa: It IS pretty.

Interior, the Duomo of Siena. According to the tour booklet, “this Gothic cathedral was one of Italy’s first.” Self was particularly taken by the striped columns. How very geometric and unexpectedly modern!

Interior, the Duomo of Siena: Breathtaking
