Are you ready to bone? Are you ready for dome?

It's not Porn Monday, but can we still talk about Meatscapes? It's not what you think. Well, if you suspect that it's a site with collages utilizing 50's era postcards and large lumps of meat, then it is what you think. I enjoyed this one of the area around the Duomo in Florence. When I was there, though, the Baptistry wasn't topped with a ginormous hunk of meat. No fair! For your viewing pleasure, I'm also including a shot I took after I climbed the 500 some odd steps to the top of the dome. You can see the tiny observation area I was on if you check out the dome tip in the meat shot. Hmm. Let's revisit that once more with feeling, shall we? Check out the dome tip in the meat shot. My photo is kind of a hokey perspective thing, but still, I enjoy it. I was really most interested in getting some detail of the marble spine and the individual tiles that make up the dome. Architecture dork. Still, I like how it turned out and you get to see the warren of streets around the cathedral. I'd go back to Florence in half a heartbeat. Wanna come with?

No love for my Florence picture? When I look at it, I imagine the lives going on behind those tiny windows way down there in the shadow of the great cathedral.

I was going to post something about your meat, but then good taste took over. Sorry dude.

Is your dome tip glistening, Michael? Because, 'member Andrew's Metal Sculpture dome tip? His tip was glistening and quite full of tension if I recall.

Hmmm, si, the vite dei miei amanti italiani dietro le finestre. Per sicuro, ragazza.

What?

Further proof there is a hive mind in action, I started a comment about 'shame it wasn't raining, because then we could have had a glistening dome shot...' etc.

Loulou, you're not my Id made manifest are you, by any chance?

Hee! Andrew, as is so often the case, it's like we're getting the same vibe, only you know how to put your finger on it.

I'm famous for that, and I'm only pint sized so my fingers aren't that big, even though I have, you know *cough*big hands for my height*cough*... oh, wait I think I misunderstood.

Michael said...

Mmmm, you're all Michelangelo's David with the disproportionate hands. Nooice.
Again, like me. I have really long fingers, too. Kinda thick. And size 11 feet. Is that so very large?

Stop it, just stop it! You are too far, far away for all this 'I'm tall, I have big hands and feet, I can rock a pair of 2xist boxer briefs'... m'kay? :-)
