Holy Angles of Burgos

Burgos Cathedral Angle

I really like cathedrals. They are a testament to what humans can do with good planning, hard work, creativity, patience, and good funding. I am left in awe by the meticulous detail of carving stone after stone after stone with the exact same shape, so that, when stacked together, they form perfect beautiful lines from floor to canopied ceiling. So I have a pillar fetish, so what?

Below are some photos I took during our recent visit to the Burgos Cathedral that didn't quite fit in with the main post. Burgos Cathedral Angle

I also dig vanishing point photography.

If I'd had a tripod, I could have done more depth of field control. Oh well.
