It’s been few weeks since I started to submit my photos for this wonderful Monochrome Madness Challenge. Every week I look at other people’s photos and I am enjoying different subjects and approaches. And every week I try to find something different to submit. I must say, that’s not the easiest job, since most of my photos fall into two or three categories – flowers, buildings, flowers.
Imagine my surprise when I stumbled upon something completely different (wonder if there are any Monty Python fans checking out my blog). As with most of my photos of lately, this one was also taken in Milan, it seems I will be milking that cow for months. I was visiting the Archeological Museum and let me tell you, our ancestors had some rocking bodies. Of course, what is a poor girl to do, but take at least dozen photos of some amazing sculptures, mostly of naked men. Perfect excuse – It is art!!! It is history!!! It is art history!!!
