Bob’s fine photos from Ravenna prompted me to post this pair of photos from my first visit to Ravenna about 15 years ago. The first photo is Ponte d’Augusto (bridge of Emperor August), completed 20 AD. The bridge has stood there for two millennia, even resisting attempts by the retreating German army to destroy it.

In comparison, this photo reflects my utter frustration in Ravenna. Everybody was on strike, all the museums and historical sites were closed. This photo is from a lavatory in which all the four urinals were “brocken”.

Both photos with Nikon Nuvis S APS camera, which I bought in 1998. According to Camerapedia, it was manufactured in a Nikon plant in Indonesia.

Best regards, Antero
