Mirrors to the sky

My favorite sight on rue Sainte Catherine Ouest is the Christ church Anglican church. Unfortunately, we did not have time to visit inside.

Harmony is the word that comes to mind when I see this beautiful old church nested among the buildings.

  1. No. 2 reminds me of Amiens & that window! No. 3 – I really like the contrast of the colours in this one, and the juxtaposition of new brickwork & the older, reflected architecture.

    1. Hi Joyce,
      Aaah, Amiens! We both have memories there at present! Very nice classical style here with some lovely details that the zoom brings out.
      Number 3 was enhanced a bit and it was really nice to see different textures and reflexions. This one just made me stop and admire… then, photograph!

  2. I love churches. And this one is a beauty, nestled in the busy-ness of the city.
    For some reason it made me sad–although I adore the reflected one muchly.

    Church spires were always the center, the hallmark of the town–easily spotted because their spires touched the sky and led the way. Makes me sad this one’s overshadowed by the glass and glitz.

    *laughing*

    I didn’t quite see the harmony, huh? 😉

    1. Hi Mel,
      Yes, this is a beauty. For my point of view, there is a harmony because such a significant structure is not torn down to make place for buildings(that would have been very sad) but is kept and cohabitates among these newer structures.

      i do understand what you are saying about being “overshadowed” by the big buildings.It is true.
      I would love to return and discover the inside one day :).

  3. Hi Ronnie,
    i am happy that you enjoyed. I always visit at least one church when I travel. Philly is also has some beautiful churches but alas, many have been closed or even destroyed.

    Have a great day.
