Travel Photography Friday – Wall in Santo Domingo Cathedral, Oaxaca

While the outside of the cathedral can be quite deceiving, I was blown away by the light that entered this holy place. For .00000005 seconds I thought about how cool it would be to be a Catholic. The wall in Santo Domingo Cathedral is just stunning.

      @Andi: HAHA! It would still make an interesting place to go to church. It could keep you entertained for hours looking at all the details!

    Sometimes I have a similar thought, like when I hear really cool Gregorian chanting or happen into a particularly impressive cathedral. And then I’m like, WHAT?!? I’ll just get the cd, thanks. 😉

      @Christy: I’m just like – wow, what a different way to experience religion. I’m not religious by any means but still… it is interesting. 😀

    Beautiful photo! It’s so ornate. I felt the same way about the Vatican. It was so beautiful and opulent that at first I thought I might be missing out on something…but that feeling quickly passed :)

      @Emily: At least I am not alone in the fleeting feeling!

    Churches are prone to good photos as so many of them have so many details to de admired!

      @Fede: The low light just kills me sometimes!
