  2. When I got to places like this, I can’t help but pause and envision what it must have been like to be here in its heyday. This photo does that for me, too. 🙂

  5. It’s fantastic, isn’t it? We close our eyes and see life swirling around us, as if we’re in the thick of it … won’t be long before they’ll be peopling ancient cities with moving 3D images, don’t you think?
