The Co-Cathedral of the Sacred Heart is located in the shadow of downtown Houston. It replaced the older building when it opened in 2008. This is the top of the dome, sitting high atop the cathedral and only seen when standing at a distance. I have yet to see the church inside, but the photos I have seen says it would be a great place to shoot sometime.
Leaving the Normandy countryside in northwestern France, our tour group stopped at small fishing town on the Seine called Honfleur, close to the Pont de Normandie.. Full of the flavor of France, this town is a photographer's dream. Known for its old, beautiful picturesque port, the colors and shapes of small shops and cafes contrast against old historic churches and the many boats in the harbor. The weather was perfect the day we visited and we had time to wonder about. It was one of the few stops where we could relax and soak in the local ambiance, truly feeling like we were indeed in France.
These rowboats are from the Folkestone Harbor in England, just down the road from Dover. The sun was starting to set and already the little harbor was settling in for the evening.
