Lily, you took so many fine photographs in Italy! And there are lots of interesting subjects!

Icing on a cake was my first thought too, Bibi! Oh, Lily, this one's magnificent.

Yup, icing on a cake is what I thought too. You sure did take your "eye" to Italy with you—this is just spectacular. Brava, Lily!
