I was thinking if I had been at these places, I would have been tempted to ask, “Oh by the way, who was your interior decorator? Is he/she available for small jobs?”
Lovely photos. Powerful, majestic, beautiful.
Laughing……That would be a dream come true. If Michelangelo came to paint my ceiling I think I would know I had arrived in Heaven!

Very lovely collection, and a very happy Christmas to you too. (Melk is the place where, when I was a prickly teenager, my mother memorably asked to buy a ‘Stift’ in a postcard shop… Decades later, it doesn’t sound quite so bad…)
I can see why that memory has stayed with you!!!
And to you, Cindy. An excellent set.
Thank you Derrick 🌟

Yes. We are capable of so much beauty. I will hold this thought as well Liz and peace to you my friend 🌟
Peace to you as well, Cindy.
It seems when human-beings (reach for and) engage (with) their higher faculties, creativity knows no bounds and beauty is the reward for devoted endeavour: ’tis poetry in stone.
Wonderful photographs, as is your style, thank you.
Best Wishes for a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous, healthy New Year.
You, of course, say this so beautifully and eloquently Dewin. Wishing you and yours The Best of the Season and Happiest New Year 🌟

MERRY CHRISTMAS, dear Cindy!!!
We had our big feast yesterday. I’m recovering quite nicely, now. LOL!
As I type this I am babysitting the baby twins from NoCal. Their parents, and my son, went to see Star Wars. One baby is coughing. I am basically staying up eavesdropping on the coughing, until the parents get home. Laughing…..no baby coughs alone on my watch. Happy Holidays Resa <3
All are gr8. I especially like the mix of colors in #1 and #2. Hope U had a Merry Xmas.
I did. And I hope you did too. Merry Christmas. <3
Gorgeous, Cindy, and food for thought about how much love and yearning that goes into worship.
Yes, and how much this yearning enables some people to add so beauty to the world. <3
