    yeah, ... ani is pretty impressive, there was one church there called "the wedding cake church"
    concentric circular walls stacked up, one on top of eachother with a fresco'ed vault and free standing dome.
    above the front door of the church had a carving of the architect ( i think i am remembering right )
    presenting a model of the church to the king he made it for ( or maybe it was the king presenting it to the Catholicos? )
    both kind of smiling, long curly hair ... kind of fun i think it is pretty much gone now .. just rubble.

    there is another church called akhtamar ( church of the holy cross ), on an island in lake van i studied when i was a student ...
    the whole church is banded / completely covered in carvings and relief of biblical scenes and stories,
    pretty mind blowing. a lot of the other churches are carvings here + there but not everywhere
    ... ( i think there are pix in the wiki if you are interested )

    just the same i don't think i will ever be able to go, so i will just dream of it all, and thumb through
    my old text books, the photographs are beautiful hand made vintage xeroxes of vintage photographs

    In no particular order (and with no specific destinations in each): Israel, Cuba, Brasil, the UK, Germany, China, France, Japan, Mexico and the Netherlands (I omit the US, because it is on my doorstep...lol).
    An assortment of F-series Nikons (F to F6, excluding the F4) with quite a few Nikkors, a pair of M6s with some Leitz glass, a pair of 500c/ms with a wide range of Zeiss optics and, just to help keep Duracell solvent, a D800.

    I checked off driving in Oceano Dunes again. This time with Jeep Beach West. Not my video.

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.
