All Saints’ Cathedral

A View from the Vestibule

A View from the Vestibule

I’m not one for spending a lot of time attending church services, but I do appreciate a quiet space where I can take some time out of my day and sit in quiet.

Often that quiet space, at least for me, is out in the middle of a hardwood forest propped against a tree, or sitting on the giant boulders lining the lakes, concentrating on the waves that never stop washing over the rocky shore.

But sometimes I find myself in the city, and I find myself in need of a quiet place. Occasionally I walk inside one of the many churches that line the downtown streets, and I find a space to sit and spend a few minutes in silence.

I was quite taken by the old world beauty of this church in downtown Milwaukee, and wanted to capture the feeling in a photograph. The half open door provided just enough framing for a part of the interior of the church. I liked the warm colors and the simplicity.

It was another one of those good spaces.

  1. I agree, I love the warm colors and it seems very inviting. Haha. Perfect resting ground for a few moments.

    Yes, there are some old churches and old world churches that are just beautiful in architecture and serene ambiance inside. I’ve come across one once in the middle of the Kansas prairie. Lovely warm colors in this image.

  5. That is a beautiful church and it does look inviting, but I still prefer the solitude of a forest.
