excellent shot, Tom. i like the clarity here, all very well illuminated.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Ayush - yes, it is a nicely light and airy church.
Ornate probably covers it Tom....
Tom Wilson: Modestly so by the usual Catholic standards, Frank. smile
I like the blue ribbons...

I like the use of blues and greens, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Yes, I don't know why they were there!

Well tended statuary. I wonder who they represent?
Tom Wilson: Good question! The saints usually represented in churches appear to be Peter and Paul??
It looks like a festivity of sorts was going on while you were there, Tom? I wonder if we'll ever get to Lithuania?!
Tom Wilson: No reason why you shouldn't, Ginnie - daily flights from Amsterdam to Vilnius by KLM!
Une décoration très chargée.
Tom Wilson: Merci, Martine.

This is beautiful, Tom. I wonder about the glas "thingies" that are on top of the tall candles. Do they prevent the candle from dripping?
Tom Wilson: Possibly to prevent the flame from blowing out?

So much to distract, or perhaps to focus the mind, Tom
Tom Wilson: Sunday entertainment smile
All a bit OTT to me Tom
Tom Wilson: Oh, quite modest for a European Catholic Church, Bill. This would probably be regarded as understated!

Catholic Churches in England are not called Holy Trinity, or, All Saints. Clearly Catholic here because of the tabernacle.
Tom Wilson: As a happy heathen I'll take your word for it, Chad smile
Nice light to allow us full sight of this altar. I like the simple, small geraniums.
Tom Wilson: Yes, the natural lighting was excellent.
This is beautiful, good photo, Tom
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Roland. I had difficulty in leaving a comment on your site - it seems to want a Capcha response, but I couldn't see that anywhere! I use Safari, so that may be the problem. I tried again today with Chrome but get the message "Merci de votre visite et commentaire, le Captcha est désagréable!!
Comments are moderate, sorry !" But there's no Captcha visible???

very ornate
Tom Wilson: Wait until you see the close-up of that image!
It is quite different to most churches I have seen.
Tom Wilson: Much more natural light than one usually gets - not much in the way of stained glass, I guess.
The brightness around the altar really makes this different......very ornate smile
