I almost hear a distant rumble in my centre. Resounding deep and far in this museum of memories that is my flesh.
I wonder if it were you, that little being playing with great energy across a vast world of ruined stones.

where is this Francis? It looks an ancient building, is it Roman? but I see a very modern traffic light down on the right of your shot.
hehe, I’d love to say that I visited once a place from the Roman Empire but the truth is that I never went beyond Peru and closer places in Chile and Bolivia.
The building is a colonial basilica cathedral from seventeenth century in Arequipa city modified by an architect from there in nineteenth century (after an earthquake) in neo-gothic and neo-classic style, it’s built with sculpted white volcanic rock. I love contrasts of old and new for that I arranged the traffic light in the composition.
I just did an image search on it, a beautiful cathedral.
Yes, the people of Arequipa have pride for their cathedral, well, they’ve pride for everything there :P
