Travel theme: Architecture

This is the interior of Todi Cathedral in the province of Perugia in Italy.  In the heat of an Umbrian summer the thick stone walls and large open space provided welcome cool sanctuary from outside pavements hotter than a match head (The Lovin’ Spoonful).  As may be all too obvious, the angels in the architecture have been “re-positioned” from elsewhere inside the cathedral.  The lyric from Paul Simon’s You Can Call Me Al have also been subject to minor adaptation:

    What an amazing image, the light is liquid, and the person gives the whole photo scale…wow!

      Many thanks – Pam is a very helpful prop if/when she obeys instructions 🙂

        Well Pam is a wonderful prop, and clearly follows instructions better than my husband, Andi 🙂

    The sculpture is beautiful, but the photo wouldn’t be the same without the people and the cross. They really add drama and perspective.

      Many thanks – I was particularly taken by the chance positioning of the central cross which I only noticed after taking the photo.

    Wow!! This is a stunning sculpture and such a beautiful quote to go with it. Great photo!!

    • northumbrianlight · August 10, 2013

      Yes I really like those lyrics too – it was a case of thinking of the words and finding a picture/construction to go with them. Thanks for taking the time to stop by and comment.
