The Weekend in Black and White

Ritva's Art - Monochrome Photography

The city of Pompeii was an ancient Roman town-city near modern Naples in the Italian region of Campania, in the territory of the commune of Pompei. Pompeii, along with Herculaneum and many villas in the surrounding area, was mostly destroyed and buried under 4 to 6 m (13 to 20 ft) of ash and pumice in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD.
These two photos are from Herculaneum, it sem unreal that they have been able to dig these places up.

  1. Pompeihin kuviin passaakin hyvin mv! Fiilis tulee hyvin mukaan. Se suruinen sellainen. Tokihan se on ollut aivan mahdottoman hieno kaupunki ennen tuhoa ja näissäkin näkee arkkitehtuurin taidokkuutta. Siellä pitäisi ehdottomasti päästä käymään!
