    I had to click on this one because I thought it might be you! I wanted to see what sort of photo manipulation you had used to turn yourself into a statue. Instead, I find a real sculpture, very ancient yet is beautiful condition. Very interesting! Do you think this could have been you in a former life?
    Great capture, BTW! ☺♥

  • Hi, Jade. Ah! Those were the good old days. Now just imagine the size of our photo portfolios if we all lived plus 2000-years. Thank you for looking.
    Best wishes

    I love classical mythology and studied it extensively as part of my degree. This is striking! I love the clarity and the shadow in the stone, giving it a “real” feel.

  • Thank you for your kind commentary on the shot, Marcelle. There was a great deal of interest at the small Evela museum and at the slightly larger one at Paestum; not big but with superb exhibits.
    Best wishes
