    Nice to see some of these building details, Mark.
    Such an enormous amount of paving. Can you imagine how long it must have taken to construct these courtyards or walkways.

      Thanks Callie……I do look for the framing opportunities, I find the results more interesting. It’s not always possible though.

    I haven’t been here – but now feel that I have 🙂
    Your photos show both the intimate details and grandeur of the place. Beautifully done Mark!
