Weekly Photo Challenge : Threshold

Siena’s Duomo is accessed from the west by a threshold of steps that lead you to the Visitors entrance. The threshold of continuous steps elevates this building dating from the 1200’s above the square.
Visited by more than a million visitors annually, this threshold becomes a meeting point for lovers and friends, a place to sit and ponder, have a friendly chat, etc. Threshold is the prompt on the Weekly Photo Challenge this week, and images of and at Siena’s Duomo are my response to the prompt……………

Weekly Photo Challenge : Inside

Built before 1350, Rising 88m above Piazza del Campo, Siena’s premier square, is Torre del Mangia. Imagine climbing 88m up a staircase within a tower with almost 3m thick walls, it can get rather claustrophobic :-). Inside, is the prompt for the weekly photo challenge this week, so images of the inside of the Courtyard at the base of the tower, a view of the staircase from the bottom looking up, and a view through an opening, looking down onto the popular piazza are my response to the prompt. The first image, is a view of the tower from the piazza, outside.
