Keeping an Eye Out

Up above the Great Bath (as posted here) are several Roman statues lining the tops of the columns.  This whole area was built in the 18th century, as opposed to the bath below that was built in the first century CE.  Originally a pitched timbered roof covered the bath.  Today it stands open to the elements.

This is a series on Bath, England, when we visited on February 24th.

[Today I'm in Amsterdam.]

That reminds me. I need a bath
Ginnie Hart: HA. Hopefully you've had one by now, Busola (even though I tend to be a shower person myself!).
Seems like the statue is ready for a plunge into the water below tongue
Ginnie Hart: You're right, Thomas. Wouldn't THAT be a sight!
I love all the detail in the architechture. Very nice photo Ginnie!!
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, DD. Thanks.
One of the many things I like about you is that you give different views and angles to a subject. Well done
Ginnie Hart: Awww. Thanks, Shakara!
Hi again Ginnie. Another nice depiction of this fine city. Did you taste the waters when you visited? I believe it's not to be recommended.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Chris, I actually did! I decided that a glass a day of that mineral water would cure whatever ailed you!!!
l'angle choisi, la couleur adoptée.. tout est beau
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, O-P.
good item for sepia
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Chantal. I thought so, too. smile

Must have been a pleasure to take a bath there. Nicely captured! smile
Ginnie Hart: I guess so, Julia. I'm guessing back then it was only the men who had the pleasure!
This is a very nice example of neo-classical architecture. I like how you captured and processed the various textures!
Ginnie Hart: So that's what it's called, Martin. I LOVE architecture, as you know by now, but don't always know what kind it is. I'll store that one away! Thanks.
Thank you, Ginnie for providing all the great information about your travels. I've learned so much from your blog! Love it.
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart to say that, Kay. Thank you so much.

Fascinating and beautiful.
