PhotoHunt: Space

This week's theme is "space."

It's gonna be fun to see what everyone does for this wide-open theme!

No surprise, but I've gotta go with "Sacred Space" and the amazing mosaics in the Basilica di San Marco, the cathedral of Venice and my favorite church in the world.

Those are brilliant photos - I would think about joining the hunt, but I don't think my photo collection is deep enough - love to see your hunt pics, tho.

That is a gorgeous church!

Oh, I love your take.Nice shot. Happy weekend!

That is a wonderful church! I wonder if it still gets full during masses?

Happy Saturday!

Looks like a huge space with great architectural designs in the building :) Lovely!

Oh how beautiful. I can't imagine how it felt to actually be inside. Thanks for sharing these shots.

Love your take on the theme. Beautiful captures there.

YTSL:

Apologies if it sounds blasphemous but -- Oh my god. That place, and your photos, are truly magnificent! :)

m:

ooohh sooo nice thanks for sharing all that rare beauty that most of us may never see

I love church interiors.... You feel so small in some of them...

That is just gorgeous!

Jane:

Anne, your photos are beautiful.

Eden:

omg, the pictures take my breath away! wonderful pics!

liz:

Wow!

Gorgeous photos! I love the lighting. Did you take them from inside the church? Great take on the theme.

Hi Girasoli, yes I was inside the church, on the floor, no flash. They came out much better than I thought they would.

Beautiful choice for space!

My Photo Hunter post is at
More of Me - EG

I have never seen the church from the floor only from the walkways high up as there were always services when we've wanted to visit. The mosaics are brilliant from that vantage point. Great shots!

Those photos are of a truly beautiful space. Some of my favorite photos are from Venice.

june:

Wonderful interpretation on the theme...great pictures too!

Wow! That's gorgeous!

I played too :)

Annie! When I posted my photos I actually said to myself...I bet Annie will post a 'sacred' picture, too! LOL

Lynn:

Wow, overwhelming! That's all I can say. Elaborately done. It's beautiful!

Kathy (Trekcapri):

Hi Annie, beautiful photos! And I love your take on Sacred Space. I can see why that is your favorite church in the world. Stunning!

Happy Weekend to you (especially tomorrow afternoon)!

Kathy, thanks! And Go Heels!!!

Lene:

Amazing and breathtaking.

Have a nice day :)

This is an amazing sight of scared space. I can't imagine how it must have been to be inside this space.

Happy Hunting!

Stunning photos, Annie! I don’t think I have a favorite church but if I did San Marco had to be on the top of the list. I’m guessing this photo is from your last trip. Love the perspective.

Have a great weekend!

Beautiful photos, beautiful blog. Maria and Lulu are lovely!

sandrac:

So beautiful, Annie!

Old Basilicas really have big space inside.

i can understand why u like the church. it is calming and meditative..sense of holiness abt the place

Fantastic photos! Captured the beauty of the place - second to being there! My first time in the basilica, I had a heard time figuring out if I should look up or look down! The frescos were magnificant but being a quilter (of sorts) the patterns in the tiled floor mesmorized me. Thanks for reviving fond memories for me - menehune

Beautiful. You're so blessed to have been able to see such beautiful place.

sheri:

Annie, I can only echo everyone else's comments. Those photos are gorgeous!

Absolutely gorgeous!! Those colors are fantastic.

Anne:

Annie, your photos really are gorgeous! What an inspired take on this theme. My own church is my favourite in the world, but San Marco is high on the list too! ;)

Some truly excellent photographs - thanks very much for sharing them!

You are very fortunate - I don't think you are allowed to take photos inside here anymore.
