St. Peter's Basilica and the Sistine Chapel: a sense of power

It was an amazing and memorable afternoon for me to tour St. Peter's Basilica and the Sistine Chapel. I was overwhelmed with the sense of power throughout: the history, religion, politics, and art.

As I walked among the museum works, I also tried to capture some less-than-ordinary photos. Admiring the grounds out the windows. Capturing the sunlight coming through the windows onto the statues. Looking at the dome between the massive columns.

Here are a few pictures as examples of the day.
