Another Brick In The Wall

My previous Córdoba post (click here) focused on the ceilings (and floors) of the Mezquita/Cathedral (and on San Geraldo's royal ring-finger). It seems only fitting that I should give equal time to the walls.

  2. What amazing art! It must be something to live around beauty. Does it effect the soul and day to day living I hope?

      It certainly helps. And your reaction to it all helps, too. I wish I could simply bottle the feeling and never run out.

  3. Mitchell, the inside of the building is really stunning. The use of the different colors looks really outstanding in the one picture of the arches. In that last photo....wouldn't find me hanging out there on that scaffolding!

      You wouldn't find me hanging out there either. At that time, they were just erecting the scaffolding.

  4. The interior of Cordoba's Grand Mosque is stunning, but the baroque church added to the interior always throws me and looks kinda bizarre.

      The stonework and mosaics are incredible in both, but I agree that the catehdral inside the mosque looks bizarre.

  6. I wouldn't know where to start in this magnificent building! I would be dizzy trying to get it all in.
    You did a masterful job, Mitchell, with all these beautiful photos.

    And what can I say about Pink Floyd.....they are the BEST! Was my brother's favourite group.

      It's definitely a bit overwhelming. Judy commented on being overwhelmed in the orange tree courtyard. We hadn't even gone inside yet.

  8. Exquisite - not the song, though it is catchy; the architecture.
    Hugs to you, dear Mitchell.
