Vatican, November 2012

The Sistine Chapel struck me first as just a painted box. Then it turns out the paintings are quite good.
Interesting shapes round the back of St Peter’s square.
If the general rule that the sillier the dress uniform the more lethal the soldier holds here, these guys are nuclear.
Something went wrong with this clip of an extraordinary staircase. I’m not sure I could cope with living in a place as unremittingly monumental.
