I see the appeal.
Ginnie Hart: I think we all do it, Michael?

I love the polished surfaces, Ginnie, and the blackness...
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ray. I find many Roman Catholic churches to be some of the darkest I've ever been in.
I love the use of black and white. So beautiful.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Michael.
Lovely - it "looks" quiet! Beautiful light, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: We didn't have the place to ourselves, Elizabeth, but, yes, it was still quiet. Thank you.
nice b/w shot, ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Frank.

I love the light in this picture. This was such a wonderful place to visit. Beautiful picture.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Astrid. I'll never forget it. So cozy for a basilica.

Un point de vue inattendu. Joli noir et blanc.
Ginnie Hart: The sanctuary is very small, Martine, and sometimes I had to stand in one of the side chapels (as in this image) to get the feel of the place.

It actually looks cosy ere Ginnie but I'm not sure it is in reality
Ginnie Hart: It is very cozy and small, Chris. I was standing in a side chapel to get the view across the round sanctuary. You and Lisl would love seeing this basilica.

How lovely that soft light is, Ginnie, polishing the wood even more than the holy dusters have
Ginnie Hart: When I'm in such a place, Lisl, I always feel that you are with me/us. Thank you.

a wonderful, atmospheric image! I would light on a candle here.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Philine. In 2017 I plan to light more candles!
Nice. I like the dark gloss Ginnie, but those pews don't look too comfortable.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Chad. Those pews need some English cushions!
A fine place for a quiet contemplation Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: It was, indeed, Bill.

Strange, the pulpit is behind the congregation, who faces the other way. I like this blackdoggish shot.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Louis. The sanctuary is circular, even though the pews are facing the altar. I, too, found the pulpit placement strange. Hmmmm.

oh yes, indeed, i hope that 2017 lives up to all our hopes and dreams!! lovely black and white shot, the lighting is amazing!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elaine. Yes, indeed!
The gleaming surfaces here really stand out.
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, Mary. Thanks.
I'm sure this looks good in colour but it has so much more feeling in B.& W.
Ginnie Hart: Having seen the color, Brian, I agree. smile Thank you.

Don't look back too much. Lean from what did not quite go to plan and move on... smile I like the strong contrast in this.
Ginnie Hart: We all SHOULD learn from what didn't go right, Alan, but history tells us otherwise, I'm afraid. But we will chin-up and look forward now into the new year. Surely there is hope somewhere to be found!!!
this is a wonderful backlight composition of the Basilica Ginnie... perfect in b&w....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
Wonderful shot...
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Larry.
So many sad things happened this year. Let's hope 2017 will be a good one...
Ginnie Hart: I know, LC. If we don't have hope midst the chaos, we are of all people most miserable!
So perfect for black and white...that light!
