Rome – Castle of the Holy Angel by DanieleFlorenzi

The Mausoleum of Hadrian, usually known as Castel Sant’Angelo (English: Castle of the Holy Angel), is a towering cylindrical building in Parco Adriano, Rome, Italy. It was initially commissioned by the Roman Emperor Hadrian as a mausoleum for himself and his family. The building was later used by the popes as a fortress and castle, and is now a museum. The Castel was once the tallest building in Rome.

Cherub by lbellamy

You wouldn’t ordinarily think of a cemetery as a great place to spend a day visiting, but we did just exactly that last week. We visited Forest Lawn in Los Angeles, and spent about three hours finding celebrity plots (like Walt Disney, Clark Gable, and Nat King Cole) and admiring the architecture. We honestly could have spent all day there! This particular little cherub statue was one of my personal favorites.

Ascent by lucauge

The Bridge of Angels is one of the most fascinating places to visit in Rome. With a powerful sunset it can acquire a sense of eternal attracting beauty!

In this photo I like the linked contrast between human life and its flow at the bottom and an heavenly sky and its guardian angels on top of it.
