Wow, it looks like a collage of historical buildings, placed one on top of the other!

Wow - this is a phenomenal photo! I love the contrast of the yellow wall to the right and the stone structure of the Basilica. The perspective is great!

Beautiful colors in this photo. I can see that it took a long time to build this basilica -the building style does not exactly match up in every part. Hope you were allowed to take pics inside?

Virginia said...

Yes, the perspective is so interesting and of course, the light.
