Photographer's Note

My first attempt at photography was during a 10-day trip to Italy in the summer of 2012. I borrowed my sister's Canon PowerShot G11 and fired away. This shot was one of my favourites so I decided to share it with you.

The shot is the statue of St. Peter, who, in the Roman Catholic tradition, is believed to be the gatekeeper of Heaven.

Did you know?

The Vatican is the smallest micro-state in the world with a population of 836 and an area of a mere 44 hectares.

Despite its size, however, this tiny area is home to some of the most cherished artistic jewels in the world.

A side note - does anyone know if TE does distinct views or does it add views anytime the same person clicks on the same image. When I'm bored at work, I frequently click on my images to see if anyone has left a comment. I think this artificially raises my view count. If that's the case that's terrible!
Any thoughts?
