Photographer's Note

This is my third attempt at posting this! Very severe storms moved in the previous 2 times and I decided I better unplug the computer. No reason to have lightning strike damage any of my equipment. :) Finally, I'm getting it posted!

This is a closer view of the dome looking back from the facade through a small window in the upper most level of the Baptistery. Everything is lined up perfectly from the window, to the Madonna and child on the facade and beyond to the dome. In the museum in the southeast corner of the Campo Santo you can see a model of the complex and the lines of sight from various entrances to the square as well as the relations between the various buildings. You can also see some very interesting unfinished sculptures. Well worth a walk through.

The dome here was a later addition to the cathedral and is made in an elliptical format. It is 2 interior bays deep and 1 bay wide over the crossing. The base of the exterior is accented by fine tracery work. The interior is painted with a fresco, which you can see in the posted workshop view.

This statue makes me think of the Beatles song, even if it wasn't about this subject, hence the title here.

This was the same small window I used to photograph 2 previous posted images. It really is worth the climb to the top of the Baptistery for this view.

I cropped this to center the dome since I had a little more space on the right. It's a small window and hard to get it just right. And I also cropped a bit off the bottom. You can see some of the deformations that plague the cathedral just like the tower. You can see certain features of the facade are lined up while others are not.
