Black and White Challenge:
One of our stops in Rome was at the Pantheon.
The circular part of the Pantheon has…
a domed roof with a circular hole in the middle.
The circle in the roof is called the Oculus.
To capture this photo one has to stand like
the person in the white shirt in the next image.
Nearly over balancing backwards.
It was thought that the Oculus was designed so that rain could not enter.
However, this is not rue and the floor is roped off
in a rough circle where rain does fall.
However, rain entering the Pantheon is swiftly removed
via a 2,000 year old drainage system under the floor.
