Church



My churchgoing, I'm afraid, is only architectural. So I have loads of pictures of churches, but I thought I'd share this one. It's a cold wet grey day today, and it was a cold wet grey day as we stood outside St Urbain in Troyes, discovering that the opening hours had changed two days before and we weren't going inside. Luckily, the facade is most of the point - a perfect example of Rayonnant style. It shows the style really well - lots of light and also lots of layers, with false screens and overlays all over the place. Beautiful, even on a cold grey wet day.

It's very impressive - such delicate stonework.
This is wonderful architecture. Grey days are perfect for capturing all those details in the building!
Extremely beautiful.
Beautiful! I'd never heard of that style before, but it's really amazing, making stonework look so delicate.
