Weekly photo challenge: Patterns

In this week’s WP photo challenge, we look for patterns.  I dug out an archived shot for the occasion. Here are some patterns on the front of Amiens cathedral:

Here, you can see the patterns with statues of holy men and angels. What an intricate and amazing piece of sculpture that can be found above the door.

One does not need to have a spiritual belief to come to a holy space such as this one. You can be moved by the art, sculptures, stained glass and the rest. It is all heavenly.

Enjoy!
Have a great week.

    1. Hi Anne,
      Thank you, hon. In a cathedral, patterns make for beautiful viewing and photography. It was a please. Be well too, on your side xox

  2. OH my…..I was humbled just looking at it. If that was a part of the plan in setting it into stone–it’s working, hundreds of years later. A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.

    1. Hey there Mel,
      Isn’t this one of those moments of humility? Some people/ persons made all of this live from stone and yes, it is still around to look down on us.
      It was a pleasure to share. xox

    1. Hi Joycelyn,
      It is wonderful to see you. I am happy that you enjoyed. Thank you so much. I think that the stone mason(s) did 99% of the work here; the 1% that is remaining is my modest depiction.
      Wishing you a happy day!
      P.S. You are entered for our August drawing through this comment. Good luck!!

    1. Hi Sartenada,
      Thank you so much. I agree that once these fabulous pieces of art are “shot”, we have all the time(and comfort) to admire.
      Happy weekend to you!
