Lights and shadows.
Great light and building. Must be an important place.
It’s the cathedral of Puno city, a neo-colonial building. For Christians I think it’s an important building in the region and for the national history of architecture is also part of it. : )
Thats a wonderful and dramatic photograph. I don’t know what the building is, but it has an imposing presence.
It’s the Cathedral of Puno city, made in 1668 and at 3,830 m (12,556 ft) of altitude. I don’t consider it very special because Peru is full of churches like this, I am sure for a foreigner they have to be a discovering. I tend to visit more our native temples that are the peaks of sacred hills.
I guess that’s always the way. Visitors tend to be amazed and impressed by the things the locals find commonplace. :)
Haha, yes! I’ll try to see with the eyes of foreigners to discover again what custom has hide to my eyes. Thanks!
You’re welcome. :)
Very dramatic .. Great light Francis
Thank you Julie. Cathedrals can look quite dramatic in Peru. ^^
Looks elegant, Francis, but also somehow menacing.. almost like looming from the night above the street and maybe the neighborhood.
It is at purpose. When Spaniards came and the Catholic church with them the desing of churches was made with the idea to impress us. Fortunately the design they do these days are kinder and with more light. The buildings around it are the plaza with the city hall and others big (for the city) buildings. The plaza is more sweet to have a nice time. https://guaromekano.wordpress.com/2015/06/10/sculptures-in-green/ ^^
It certainly looks more friendly during the day, and all the green, the flowers.. those trees look splendid, such a nice place. Thank you, Francis. ^_^
Thanks for find beauty in them. ^^
Wonderful play on light and shadow, Francis! The man looming in the doorway is a nice touch.
And a free one 3:-) he was just standing in front so I used his figure to give scale. ^^
