Well aged

This week Carmi has suggested "Well aged" as a photographic theme. 
I have recently had a wonderful three-week holiday in Italy, so here are some pics around this idea.

Please click on the photos to see more detail.

Firstly, a well-aged foot from the Vatican Museum in Rome:

I can't resist a shot of the Colosseum:

This mosaic is one of those recovered from Pompei. It is in the
Napoli (Naples)Museum.

Well-aged Parma hams from a family farm. Delicious!

I feel a little disrespectful posting these ones; I hope
no-one takes offence!  
They are mummies - one wrapped, one not - from the 
Egyptian Museum in Torino (Turin).

You can see more posts on this theme here.


  1. Love the foot, and the Coliseum, and OMG the MUMMIES! How cool is that? Great set Alexia!

  2. You obviously had a great time! Love the mummies - can't get much more aged than that!

  3. Nice selection! Especially liked the foot and the tile mosaic.

  4. I love how these shots literally take us back in time. I once had a teacher who said photography was like a time machine. We laughed at the prospect then, but now I realize how right he was!

  5. Oh so very cool! Thanks for the well aged treat for today! Love those perfect toes too! Although the little toe is a bit funny...and what stunning mummies my favorites of all time! I ahve to get my own well aged in...too just got back from vacation and so much to catch up on! Have a great day Alexia!

  6. Thank you everyone - I had fun choosing these :)


It's great when you leave a note!
