Europe

When I saw the Europe prompt I wondered what I could do ... even though I live here!

Then I realised I have moved to a city that has a Cathedral that was finished by the year 1400.  Church architecture is certainly fairly unique to Europe -

The sense of 'huge' here is amazing. I love the rosettes in the ceiling, and the banners are beautifully bright and colourful.
It is a sunning building.

I had my photo taken next to one of those ceiling bosses ... they are about 5 foot in diameter!
I love the juxtaposition of the old and solemn church with the new and bright banners.
I was stunned to see those banners - just increasing the amount of history, though.
Gah. I used to be able to identify cathedrals by sight, but I've forgotten so much of the interiors now.

But the photos are beautiful.
I love Church architecture - not just as part of my faith, but the heritage and history is truly special, isn't it?
Absolutely breathtaking.
Some of the Cathdral architecture around Britain is certainly stunning.
How did I miss this one? A lovely cathedral - but I am even more taken with the banners - they are wonderful - very modern, and yet the very sort of thing that must have been there back when the cathedral was built, too.
I think you commented on them when you saw the larger set of pics on my personal LJ.

I didn't like the banners - I think as they just suprised me to see them there!
