Most days, as I walk to the metro and then to my office, or repeat the process in reverse, I don’t think to look upward. The route holds very few surprises any more and I am often lost in thought, mentally cataloging what needs to be done at work, or what can be turned into dinner when I get home. But when I travel, or even when I walk somewhere new in my own neighborhood, I look up more. Delightful discoveries can be found above.
This is one of them–a ceiling in Canterbury Cathedral in England. The lines and patterns here are a sight to behold; the thought and effort that must have gone into creating this visual feast is mind boggling. Photo is in soft focus.
