Church ceilings

Every time I enter a cathedral, I find myself just wandering around with my head tipped up, staring at the ceiling. These pictures, I think, excuse me.

Ceiling of St. Peter's

Ceiling of the Duomo (S. Maria di Fiori) in Florence

Ceiling of St. Mary Major

Ceiling of S. Prassede

Ceiling of S. Pudenziana

Talk about uplifting the soul to God.

No, not alive, just blogging. ;)

Actually, I'm having all sorts of fun, but I have to pay a euro and hour to blog from a computer that takes forever to upload each picture. When I get back, I think I'll upload a lot more.
