Been way too long since I participated in a CCC and now I’ve a couple lined up 😉 I took a walk in old Longueuil (difficult to pronounce, I know. If you can say feuille (leaf) then you can say Longueuil). If you can’t, lots of Anglos call it Longay. 😉 Anyhoo! I went there last Sunday and when I happened upon the Co-Cathedral St-Antoine-de-Padoue, I took many a picture. I realised that I could use one of them to go with Crispina’s challenge… so I did!
I’m really loving the gilded bronze work on this window. What do you think?
Must require some maintenance, though… you know, getting rid of the verdigris that is sure to form unless taken care of regularly.
Mind you, it could takes years but still. Extra work. Then again, the verdigris has a certain charm, too. Oh! Look inside the windows. a lovely mosaic! Wow. The sun shining through there must be fabulous, yes?
Maybe we should rethink our design. It feels rather drab now when you compare, no?
Mind you, ours is rather ornate as well. And I have to admit the light coming through all the various windows is really lovely. But grey. Why did we keep it all grey?
Yes, yes, this is a massive structure… What do you think?
Umm. What you said! I think they are each beautiful in their own way.
You know what? You’re right. Why compare?
Here are a couple more pictures of the whole building – which cannot be taken without a drone…
