Gold…

November 16, 2009

In my pervious post, I commented on how I had never seen so much gold in a building, and that still stands true. However, the Orvieto Duomo facade runs a close second. The facade is covered in gold mosaics. I picked the two pictures below because I like how I framed the facade. The top one, I have framed it with two buildings that line the street that runs to the entrance. The second one I have framed the upper corner with the blue sky to create a nice contrast.

    Maggie,

    There’s the Amristar Golden Temple in India.

    This was feature in a recent Bollywood 2008 film “Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi,” if you wanted to see scene of it.

    Nice pictures.
