Church
A church along the Amalfi Coast, in Italy

A glimpse of Italy & a few of the many churches along the Amalfi Coast. More images of Italy are posted on my gallery-ITALY. Non of my indoor images of the churches from Italy will ever compare to being there in person! Amazing architecture & detailed artwork through out Italy. A must see to believe. SO if you never went to Italy, I totally recommend it.

I was excited to see that first shot - what a beauty that does not exist on this side of the ocean.

What powerful photos of, at least for me, the historical lineage of religion.

It's really hard to beat Europe for good church pictures. These are lovely.

Certainly those building such wonderful architechtural places of worhship did so for the sake of a greater reward than financial. There is a sense of spirituality viewing the interior, as you said about being there is the most appealing. Your photography needed to represent the most overall atmosphere of the church which you did perfectly. mark/salty
