A superb shot using the pattern.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Michael.
Excellent point of view Ginnie... what a wonderful way to represent the Holly Trinity....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Peter. It's the first time I've seen such a thing on the floor of a church.
Wonderful patterns Ginnie! Where there only three continents at that time?
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Richard. I suppose once upon a time there were no continents, right, but in the time of this church, my guess is all 7 continents were well-formed! smile

I didn't notice that, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: I don't think I've ever seen it before, Lisl. I 'spect you could tell me more about it?

I love the patterns and the wonderful warm colours. Basic figures do make a nice pattern.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, MLMA. It really stood out like a sore thumb for me. smile

Oh, this is Chris' church - a wonderful sign of the Holy Trinity! I alweays look down to the pavements.
Ginnie Hart: It's wonderful, Philine, isn't it!
The Olympic rings before they discovered America
Ginnie Hart: LOL, Bill. That might be a bit sacrilegious???

A beautiful floor. I like the use of the diagonals here.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Alan. I was a bit dizzy after I was done with this one. smile
The church olympics Ginnie?
Ginnie Hart: A bit more/less sacrilegious than Bill's idea, maybe, Chad? smile
Well spotted Ginnie. One could easily pass it by without realising the significance.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Janet. I would love to know more about this, especially in that spot on the floor.
A broom and a mop is needed. No one in the trinity did the cleaning.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Some things are left up to us, Mary, like keeping the entire earth "clean" and healthy!
Really love the composition of this!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Robin.
Oh just like the Venn diagram!

Did you know that the diagram was invented by an English mathematician called John Venn?

Hence, you don't see this logo at Trinity College, Dublin.
Yea, the rebellious Irish. He he...

For the same reason, I bet you don't see this pro-English sign very often in the USA. Remember the tea party? wink

Wow, I can really bull$h!t so good sometimes better than Dan Brown, I think.
Ginnie Hart: LOL, LC. You;re a hoot!!! grin

You flew all the way to England to go to church. Exemplary my dear. And you have this picture to prove that the last person on the cleaning roster, skipped duty.
Ginnie Hart: There really is a perspective on everything, Louis, isn't there. HA!

Great angles and lines - great stuff Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Anne.
I've not come across one of these in a church before. I read your day 1 on your blog, I guess your knee is holding up well nowadays.
Ginnie Hart: So I guess this isn't as common as I thought it might be for you Englaih, Brian? I'm glad that I found it, then.

And YES. My knee was a Trooper the entire time. I had no trouble with it whatsoever...but I DID have trouble with a pinched nerve in my opposite hip/glutes. Oh well. You can't always have everything!

Ginnie Hart: Oh, WOW, Philine. I love the link and the Trinity symbol from Amsterdam. I don't believe you sent this to me before, so thank you.
Very cool image. I love your POV. Sometimes we forget to look down.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Hollie. We forget to look up AND down, indeed. Too often I'm "short of eyes" to see it all!

Another explanation could hint to the St. Nicholas' story:
"The second and most common feature of St. Nicholas portraits is a set of three gold balls. In the Golden Legend the saint helps a father of three daughters who had lost everything and feared he would have to prostitute the girls. Nicholas came surreptitiously to the man's window three nights in a row, and each night he tossed in a bag of gold.

In paintings a mere bag would not be very expressive, so instead the artists used three gold balls, one for each night's gift. Usually the balls are on a closed book in his left hand (example), but occasionally they are to the side (example). Sometimes the book is open, in one case to a page in which the saint introduces himself to the viewer."
Ginnie Hart: Very interesting, Philine...and compelling. Thank you!
is that a celtic symbol? i've never seen it before!!
Ginnie Hart: I don't think so, Elaine. The Celtic symbol has points instead of rounded circles. But if you Google "trinity symbols," you sure get your education!
