Your photos today and yesterday, both of buildings, could not be more of a contrast.

Now this is how I always think of fauns. I don't understand how some people think they're cute. I think they're scary!

Beautiful sculptures.

The palace looks lovely! I wouldn't mind a faun to stand guard outside my "palace!"

Ho, hum! JM does it again. Another day, another perfect composition! Sheesh! When they passed the talent around, you got a bunch of it!

Just beautiful, JM!

Love it - such lovely architectural details! I adore these "palaces" along that part of the coast line ... some gorgeous properties there!
have a great day!
