Arches and More Arches

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 20 December 2010 in Architecture and Portfolio.

My return visit to Chicago brought me back to Holy Name Cathedral to get some more photographs of the interior. Gothic arches form arcades over the side aisles. Here we are looking toward the rear of the cathedral from the transept.

Photo captured December 17, 2010.

I read "Pillars of the Earth" a while back. Seeing this photo brings back the descriptions Ken Follett used in the book. A spectacular image!

What a great perspective Steven...we see all of the beauty of this Cathedral. And you are right, there are Arches on top of Arches here...so magnificent! I also like how you even retain the detail of the stained glass windos even though this is a "broad" shot....VERY nicely done here Steven!!! All the best!

The detail that emerges from your presentation here is amazing . . my church interiors are all about shadows in comparison.
