The Pantheon Challenge

It is not easy, to take pictures of the Pantheon building inside. Many a photographer has tried it. The version of Masa_N with a fisheye lens has convinced me:
Pantheon, Rome ---  inside view

a second good photo, but not with extreme fisheye lens once was shot by Mark Broadhead:

the PANTHEON building in Rome, Italy: the hole in the ceiling seems to work (if there is a sunbeam) like a clock, pointing to hours, weeks, months, years, decades; when we visited this tribute to all Gods (one of the oldest architecture in Europe) some birds came in through the hole; a feather tumbled down to me: I would like to play my guitar in such an architecture!

  1. Ah the frustrations of photography!


  2. Very good shots, and personally I prefer the second shot, it pulls me in more, because it looks more real 🙂 I didn’t get any great shots inside, but was blown away just walking around. The light and sound is incredible 🙂


  3. I can imagine how magnificent the sound would be in there! Frizz playing…


    • hallo Marina,
      YOUR music with your keyboard partner of course would sound there well too – but I don’t know if they would like to invite me (Mississippi Frizz, atheist, not allowed to be in a Pantheon) or you (with your “White Nigger” repertoire) – Italians prefer classical opera pathos … are there concerts in the Parthenon, Athens?


  4. Extraordinary! Maybe better to stand and stare, Frizz? Have a good weekend. 🙂


    • hi Jo,
      at first I thought, the best would be, to lay down on the marble floor and stare to the hole in the ceiling, watching the birds come in – but then I realized the tourists would trample over my belly staring to the ceiling too. At last I retired on a little marble bench in the wall, eyes closed, only listening to the babylonesque mix of tourists’ languages …

    PANTHEON is majestic! That’s the best shot I’ve seen, Wow!


Hearing from you makes my day!
