Inside Saint Louis Cathedral

Last week, one of my readers asked me if we could go into the cathedral again, so please step inside and walk to the altar...
-----------------
La semaine dernière, l'un de mes lecteurs a émis le souhait d'entrer à nouveau dans la cathédrale. Nous voici donc devant l'autel...

Beautiful interior! The modern altar and candlesticks do fit there.

Thank you for going into the cathedral and bringing us such a beautiful photograph. It looks warm and inviting as opposed to some cathedrals.

The most effective thing about this picture to me is the contrast between the cool tones of the walls and the warm tones behind he altar. Really pulls my eye in.

Thanks again for your recent comments. You really should associate your blog with City Daily Photo Blogs - much easier to catch your new posts that way.

A fabulous capture of the gorgeous structure and alter. Such historical treasures are becoming rare. Treasure your beautiful cathedral.

This is an exquisite church. I like the altar very much. The flowers there on the steps? Can you explain that? Here we would have flowers on the altar. I'm wondering if it is your custom to leave them there in someone's memory perhaps?

This is beautiful.....I can see why one would want to see it again....

@Virginia: I'm blushing here, because I don't know. :-( There are often flowers on the altar during Holy Mass, but I don't know if and why they are put down.

Very pretty and so bright inside.

Thanks for the tour!

What I really like is the very soft whitish tone, which creates a special atmosphere.
