Pan over Ancient Rome

I took this little video from atop the Palantine Hill. On the left is the Roman Forum and ancient temples, panning all the way to the right where the Colosseum Stands. Take a look.

Just imagine, this was the very center of the known world about 2,000 years ago. Incredible.

Hall of Maps, Vatican Museum

The Hall of Maps is surely one of the highlights of the Vatican Museum. During the “Waking the Vatican” tour, a visitor has the privilege of standing in the darkness as the key master switches on the lights. Here’s a video showing our reaction:

It was an impressive experience. Of course, once your eyes adjust to the light the maps are easy to see and brilliant renditions for the time they were created. This tour is worth every cent. I’ll post photos showing some of the maps at a later date.

American Airlines Flight 740 to Madrid

Just for fun, I made a little video showing the takeoff, meals, and landing on American Airlines Flight 740 from Philadelphia to Madrid, Spain.

 

It was a great flight. Excellent crew, good food, and safe. Looking forward to many more like this.

Under the bridge…

Here’s another video from a day on the Delaware River. This time, we pass under the Ben Franklin Bridge in glorious black and white. Stay with the video all the way to the end to see the subway train crossing.

That’s a handsome bridge, especially from that angle. I have another one coming in which we’ll pass under the Walt Whitman. Stay tuned.
