Beauty is a primeval phenomenon, which itself never makes its appearance, but the reflection of which is visible in a thousand different utterances of the creative mind, and is as various as nature herself.  ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

    I really like this one, Bo. I can’t say why because I don’t know. I just like it. 🙂

    That’s a fantastic quote. That Goethe sure knew how to turn a phrase. 😉

    This photo is amazing. I love the double reflection of the trees in both windows – almost ghost like. I love the wings on the arches taking flight from the limbs of the trees. Very, very intriguing shot.

    The Goethe quote is great! And I just love the gorgeous stonework and the windows with the reflective trees. 🙂

    Jules, Robin ~ I like it too – maybe the different textures and then the nature with the man-made?

    Some quotes are pretty perfect, aren’t they, Susan.

    gandalf ~ does look ghostly, doesn’t it…

    Anna ~ the stone masons were so talented here on this building – all over it, really.

    areacodes ~ thanks

    bernie ~ thanks. windows and doors are some of my favorite subjects.
