Weekly Photo Challenge: Let There Be Light

DSC04421I took this shot in Montreal – unfortunately, I can’t remember the cathedral.  The interior of the space was soaring and dim, in the pattern of all good cathedrals.  But set beyond the dark pews, the front of the church was streaming with light from skylights in the ceiling, illuminating the alter.  The girls you see singing are from Atlanta, Georgia, and I was traveling Canada with them on tour.  The upturned faces of the girls with such radiancy shining on them makes this one of my favorite pictures from the whole trip.  My only regret is that you can’t hear them singing as well as see them.

One more – my husband and I took a trip to Las Vegas two years ago.  We wandered over to the Bellagio’s sunlit gallery, because we wanted to pretend that we were staying there, perhaps.  We found a huge room filled with whimsical, larger-than life bumblebees, a carousel, a footbridge over a small “river” with an outsized swan swimming in it – all constructed of flowers.  And dangling from the ceiling by their handles were overturned umbrellas, showing off  their flower-painted canopies.  It was a lovely display.
