angel in the pantheon

among other things, I found this angel to be quite a lovely find inside the pantheon. here you see it beautifully lit from the light shining through the "hole" in the pantheon's dome.
a big thank you goes to tracy from hey harriet's shadow shot sunday meme. if you'd like to participate or see more shadow shots, please go here. have a great sunday everyone.
