houses of worship

I grew up in a home rich with the traditions of the Church of England . . . . love the stained glass windows of the older churches, the variety and rich tones of wood and elegant lighting.  There is something very powerful and majestic about being in a stately cathedral with the deep tones of organ music and a heavenly choir singing.  That experience has always taken me to a special place in my soul.  There is nothing quite equal to being in Westminster Abbey on Easter Sunday, sitting where the Royals usually sit.  As the Mastercard commercial would say, priceless. Naturally as architecture is the focus of my photography passion, photographing the places where people worship is a natural progression.  The architecture of the cathedrals of history gives me a sense of amazement as I often wonder how they accomplished these feats without the technology of today . . . obviously they were skilled craftsmen and artisans as they still stand,  having survived the ravages of war, natural disasters and fire, to remind us of their place in history. The more modern churches often reflect contemporary architectural  design and are very unique with their edgy angles and curves.
