sneaky Sistine chapel pic.. When I saw this, I said that is a sneaky pic! I was there, they watch everybody for cameras cuz the flash will destroy the art and walls. Some people tried laying on the floor to soak it in... Right next to the sign that says not to :)
Michelangelo, Sistine Chapel, Vatican City. This is interesting to me because Michelangelo was my project topic, and this shows both the ceiling and the last judgment. The ceiling is a beautiful work of art with great detail. The last judgement even has more detail and it was done 29 years after the ceiling.
Sistine Chapel, the Vatican, Rome… I literally cried when I saw this, I was so moved. My tourmates thought I was ill because I was crying, but I was just so overcome to be in this space where Michangelo painted and where the new Popes are chosen. And this was before the recent cleaning", I can only imagine how much more moving it would be .
