Note the details all over that remind you of the Gothic European churches
While taking these pictures, I noticed the great effect light was having on them and realized how important it is for people to have a place where they can go to feel at peace and the role these places have in helping them feel like that. The greatness, the decorative details, and most of all the stained glass windows serve that purpose of making you feel closer to God.
I love the combination of the leaves, wrought iron and stone
I liked this church in particular because it was surrounded by a beautiful garden that invited people to come in and take some time off during their day. Also, the overall architecture was so beautiful with it's combination of stone colors, iron details and large windows with stone frames.
Spires designed especially to give people the sensation that they are reaching for the sky
I wish all of you out there are great Thursday and feel happy that the week is almost over, the weather is getting better (Miami's still pretty hot though) and that Fall is right around the corner!
I remember that church from my NYU days - I must have passed it hundreds of times. And yet completely forgot about it until this post. Thanks for the reminder.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous photos, darling!ReplyDelete
really pretty. i love old church architecture because their was so much symbolism behind every detail. not like todays mega churches- sad.ReplyDelete
What a presence that church has! I love the spires on top. They almost look Asian the way the design is stacked.ReplyDelete
Wow, beautiful pics!ReplyDelete
I've always had a thing for church architecture... I found some very beautiful ones in Costa Rica.ReplyDelete
NO matter the faith, churches always relax me and make me feel happy inside. Lovely images.ReplyDelete
I love this church! Pass by it all the time :) And as usual, such fabulous photos.ReplyDelete
Oh and you should go over to SF and head on over to wine country. I so love it there. And then I can live vicariously through you because I don't have enough time to head out there this year :)
I always loved that church when I was at NYU although I only went to one event there right before I graduated. It was so nice to have something old and beautiful to look at on a daily basis though. I think a lot of people feel like that and it's so nice that you captured that here!ReplyDelete

Amazing photos! i love churches like these... so much history that it feels as if the faith is seeping out of the stones of the church.ReplyDelete
This church reminds me of Richardson auditorium on Princeton's campus-so peaceful and self-possessed. Churches are often such beautiful spaces.ReplyDelete
I always love pictures of wrought iron fences!!ReplyDelete

Those are really beautiful! I love pretty architecture and especially old looking churches. They look so peaceful.ReplyDelete
I love old architecture. I hate that Seattle just keeps on putting up new buildings paying no attention to what was. I prefer Europe...and Nutella.ReplyDelete
