Close up photographs of Pompeii

The archeological site in Pompeii was overwhelming, but in a good way.  It was vast, the history and the many stories of the people were compelling and with very little effort it is so easy to imagine what life was like living there over 2,000 years ago.

Tips for a visit will be in the next post but for now here are some of my less traditional tourist photographs of the Pompeii ruins, mainly close up pictures of some of the details that have been preserved for so many years.
