Photo hunt ~ Stripes

The photo hunt for this week is 'stripes' .

I hunted and hunted, and finally decided on
Duomo di Orvieto with it's stripes of black and white marble and golden mosaics. It is one of Italy's most fabulous cathedrals.

Happy Hunting Y'all!

I really thought the first photo was Moorish style but scrolling down I knew its Roman. Great take this week

Excellent set. I love the first picture. I thought at first it might be the Duomo at Siena. I haven't been to Orvieto yet but your pictures really show the beauty.

These are stunning! I've been to Florence, Pisa and Rome but we went from Florence to Rome and the train and didn't get to see any of the places in between. The carvings on the rose window are magnificent and what color on the facade...

Thanks for stopping by.

What a gorgeous cathedral. I love the swirled columns.

Thank you for visiting my photo hunt this week.

Great shots for stripes - those Italian churches are bloody incredible. It is so hard to believe that they have stood for 100s of years and we can't make buildings that last more than 100 as a rule!

I've never seen a building with stripes like that, amazing.
