Masterpiece. No matter where you are (and where you’ve been), I’m certain you’ve stumbled upon something extraordinary: a place that blows your mind; a work of art or object that speaks to you; or even a location or scene that’s special, unusual, or even magical in some way.
For me, when I think of “Masterpiece”, I immediately think of all the spectacular works in Rome. This is a city that is so old yet still is so vibrant. One of the most mind-blowing pieces of architecture is the Pantheon. It was originally built is AD 126 and is still a marvel of building ingenuity. It is also still a functioning church. The dome of the building is what is most amazing to me. To this day it is still the largest unreinforced concrete dome. And the light that comes in from the oculus is truly ethereal.
I do realize that using the Pantheon as a “Masterpiece” is also a duplicate of another photo challenge. But I think it’s safe to say that this architectural wonder can be in two challenges at once.
