    Very beautiful. Reminds me of when we first moved to New York city from England. We’d loved English churches, especially in the countryside. What struck us was that the American churches looked just like the English, but on a much larger scale! English churches seem almost diminutive in comparison. At the time we just put it down to the “American way”: bigger must be better!

      Thank you Dave & Sharynne!

      Interesting observation. I haven’t been to England, but I think I’ll start picturing miniature churches in my head. :)

    Reminds me of a quote by the film maker, Win Wenders: “We are so bombarded by images that pretty soon we won’t be able to see anything any more.” It is amazing what you see when you slow down and look for it. I went to a forum and walking tour with the Atlanta Regional Commission on post-WWII architecture downtown last week. It was interesting how much great architecture I noticed in places I had walked by a hundred times before.

      Agreed! On a similar note, have you the book “Outside Lies Magic”? It talks about how riding a bicycle is the perfect speed at which to see the built environment. That’d be a wider range than details, but interesting nonetheless.

Have a thought to share?
