Impressive church, maybe because of the steps leading up to it.

Lilli, I have always loved this church. My husband and I and my kids attended a folk mass in the 1980's there. It is a very beautiful church. Thanks for posting.

Nice shoot ... good angle!

Thanks for visiting .. This morning the benches are completely covered in snow, I stopped to shoot some pix of the snow in the park before heading to the office

This is a very beautiful church. Lovely captured.
Some of the footsteps are mine. The small footsteps are from an animal. :)

Love the church shot! We try to post a different one every Sunday-- except for times like this past Sunday which was a theme day.

Am looking forward to going back and seeing more of your blog. Jan

Very impressive and imposing church. I notice the big stained glass window over the entrance - I bet that is a sight on the inside.

I just found your blog and I LOVE IT! I grew up in Portland and now that I live in SC I miss it SO much! Oregon is still my favorite place on earth. Thankfully my family still lives there so I at least get to visit!
