Architecture in Orvieto

June 13, 2011

Hello Everyone,
After a very successful weekend in Venice I am pleased to be back in Orvieto enjoying the town yet again. This assignment plays on the emphasis of architecture found in Italy. I chose to take pictures of the Duomo di Orvieto, but tried to do it a little differently with the lighting. As always, let me know what you think!

Afternoon
In the afternoon the Duomo di Orvieto sits in the sun on Monday, June 13, 2011, in Orvieto, Italy. The horizontal black and white stripes where popular around the time plans were drawn up by Antonio Federighi in the 1400s.

As the day reaches an end, the late afternoon sun falls on the Duomo dis Orvieto on Monday, June 1, 2011, in Orvieto, Italy. It is estimated the cathedral stands seven stories tall.
