Many for your kind and permanent support . I really enjoyed your comments on the hound in the arcades.

As mentioned before, I'm going through some hard times. Don't know what to do, if I only could sell my business I'd just do repairs and electronics.
But I won't bore you with that, here is something to cheer me or everyone up I hope.
These pillars haven't moved in more than 700 years and this church still is a powerful place of light and hope.

Annette, you have captured this wonderfully. It is interesting to think that the anonymous people who designed and built this so long ago had the foresight to line this up in such a way as to have the light stream in like this.
So glad that you included the people for a sense of perspective (both architectural and spiritual).

The presence of these people help appreciate the height and scale of this church, Annette, and what I like is the fact that you have managed to show the verticals as such.
So sorry to hear of your predicament but hope a resolution to you satisfaction manifests itself soon.

Now thats what I call a church shot! Pillars towering up to the heavens, huge scale, what more could you want.

Keep it all in perspective Annette, things have a habit of sorting themselves out in the end.

Dramatic light in this - and those people show the incredible scale. It is a wonder how these were built, and how long, and how enduring they are - they could build lasting structures then!
