Altar: Covington

Another shot of the basilica outside Cincinnati. Churches are fantastic photography subjects because of the repeated forms. The cross on the altar is directly in line with the large, wooden hanging cross behind it and the arched shapes of the windows behind it echo in the wooden arch in front of them.

Underground Gallery: Florence

An underground hallway full of marbles and tombstones under Santa Croce in Florence. As I walked from the far end of the photo to where it was taken, my steps barely echoed, muffled in the enclosed space. From this direction it felt like a striking confluence of the old and modern. Viewing the gallery from the other direction, there was an unromantic vending machine.
