I am so pleased that so many of you keep on visiting the blog and that the variety of topics is drawing in ever larger audiences.
It took five months for our first 1,000 MyByzantine Blog visits; three months for the next 1,000. It has now taken just two months (Dec to Feb) to add a further 2,000 visits!
To celebrate some special photos taken by me during our Mosaic Hunting trip to north Italy in October 2009 (and yes I will write up the stories just as soon as I have the photos edited!). Click on the photos to see full size images and enjoy this great art.
