Camera Lucida – Enchanted

“Exploring with my camera the ruins of Pompei, walking quietly through long ago abandoned homes, walls casting spells with the courage of artwork so breathtaking volcanoes and time have no bearing. The Enchantment lingers deep in me.”

Invited by Julia of MyRedPage to join her feature called Camera Lucida. Here in part is her challenge:

camera lucida |ˌkam(ə)rə ˈluːsɪdə| an instrument in which rays of light are reflected by a prism to produce an image on a sheet of paper, from which a drawing can be made. I’ve thought that is just a beautiful description of something quite out of the ordinary…and that is what I want to achieve with this new challenge I’ve embarked on today:) Every week I will set a new theme to follow in my photography    journey and I hope you will want to join me and display your creations on what I call “Your Gallery”

Julia’s theme this week is Enchanted. Enchanted

  1. under a spell; bewitched; magical
  2. utterly delighted or captivated; fascinated; charmed

I think Camera Lucida is just a wonderful idea and I am happy to have placed this submission there. Please follow the links to take a look at what Enchantments  other photographers have captured. Peace and Blessings.


  1. I know what you you are saying. The Colosseum in Rome was very disturbing to me because of all the carnage that took place there.

    Pompeii didn’t bring out that feeling for me even though so many lost their lives there.

    I encourage you….well everyone…. to go at the very first opportunity.

    My best to you.
