A Votive in the Dark Cathedral

Newer Older

I love a scary cathedral. They can put you in such a melancholy and gloomy mood if you want them too. You can feel the overbearing saints from above judging your moves, and giving you a few bonus points in the big game if you light one of the votives. In a scientific study, it was proven than a votive makes a prayer 35% more likely to be granted.

    Your shoot is wonderful as always, but I'm surprise about no one asking for the Cathedral, or looking the architectural incredible details of a masterpiece in France church....... Amen :-O

    This photo is so extravagant and breathtaking that I exclaimed out loud when I saw it! Then I was surprised at myself because I hardly ever exclaim so involuntarily as I did at seeing the outstanding historical architecture that you've captured in this photo. I fully agree with dariotagliabue...I can't believe more people aren't intrigued to know the unstated locations of many of the photos you post. Though you do have the name of this one elsewhere in your France collection, Basilique Notre-Dame-de-Fourvière.
