Contradiction


I took this photo almost a year ago. It is a picture of one of the chapels here in the university. Strangely enough, I've always liked it, in spite of how 'unchurchly' it looks. I guess it has something to do with the exquisite lighting and the warm blend of colors. My own preference for church architecture is somewhere in the intersection of High Gothic and wildly extravagant Spanish Baroque; thus, it would seem strange for me to like such a modern looking edifice. This photo always cheers me up, though. I wish I could take more like it (sadly, my crappy T7 shakes too much, and most of the photos come off with a lot of noise).

I personally like this Church... I don't know why, I would guess the colors! Normally I am very traditional though...

I agree, the colors are fantastic! Especially at around 8.00-8.20am. :)
