~ Flamboyant ~

The PhotoHunt for today is 'Flamboyant'
This is hard, since I don't live a Flamboyant lifestyle . . .
Then, I remembered the fresco's in the Benedictine Monestary at Monte Oliveto.
These were painted by the artist known as 'il Sodoma'  at the monestary around 1498. The series of frescos illustrate the life of St Benedict.
~ some in a very flamboyant way . . .

You can easily see St Benedict . . . surrounded by some flamboyant characters.
Even the horses look flamboyant ~  (click on the photo for a larger view)

I will post more photos on my WhistleStop Blog
Happy Hunting y'all ~
Next weekend's PhotoHunt is *Really*


  1. Great idea for the flamboyant theme. Happy Weekend.

  3. Beautiful painting

  4. I love early perspective with the flattened foreground and cast of characters including the patron. Yup, I was a art history major ;-)Our flamboyant will be all video.

  5. So even you have difficulties finding photos for your own meme's themes! ;b

    My take on this week's theme is here:-

    1. I often think 'who came up with this theme?'
      Sometimes I can blame it on someone else . . . but I'm afraid this was my idea.

      It'll be fun to see what y'all come up with.

  6. I love the parti-color hose!

    Mine is up:

  7. Amazingly beautiful!

  14. Wow that was odd. I just wrote an really long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn't appear. Grrrr... well I'm not writing all that over again.

    Anyhow, just wanted to say excellent blog!

    my web page: incense sticks high

  15. I don't have a flamboyant lifestyle too, so it was a hard one for me :)

  16. What could be more flamboyant than the orange, red, and blue striped dress uniforms of the Swiss Guard soldiers who stand sentry at the gates of Vatican City?

  17. This is a very interesting painting. I’m not even sure what to say about it. It certainly is flamboyant.

  18. Whats up are using Wordpress for your blog platform?

    I'm new to the blog world but I'm trying to get started and set up my own.
    Do you need any html coding knowledge to make your own blog?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
