(Thanks to sweetie & Dino for the initial explore update! :D)

 

First of all, thanks so much for your flowery support yesterday! I don't often do girlie shot so really appreciate your response. Way better than i anticipated to be honest! :D Those comments were so hilarious i could really laugh my arse & dick off! Luckily it didn't happen otherwise there goes my evening for valentine love :P

 

As promised, i should redeem myself right now & deliver some real hdr fixes! i've quite a few churchy shots here but decided to post this one today cos of the decor & the purity of the colours, it gives a rather romantic feel to the atomsphere as if a wedding is currently going on...hmm guess this is my valentine's day hangover for you lol! Maybe this might be the consequence of my fast love last night too lmao! Anyway this is by far the whitest interior cathedral i've been to & it actually looks very elegant with the golden prints on the wall with the white marble flooring. Definitely sometihng different from the usual sandstone gothic style :)) Hope you will enjoy this chapel of love with me!

 

View LARGE On Black to say 'I DO' :P
