In Sam Houston Park is a tall statue of an angel with a sword and a palm branch. Odd. You don't expect to see the two items together normally. Built by sculptor, Louis Amateis, Spirit of The Confederacy was erected by the United Daughters of the Confederacy in January 1908. Its dedication states “To all heroes of the South who fought for the Principles of States Rights.”
Old churches and cathedrals make for great subjects for the type of photos that I enjoy taking. Things like architectural designs, large rooms and stain glass windows all contribute to making a wonderful image. But it doesn't take a huge church or fancy dwelling surroundings to go and worship. Matthew 18:20 reminds us that it just takes a few believers to come together, no matter how simple the accommodations might be.
This is the small chapel aboard the USS Lexington aircraft carrier. Simple, yet effective.
Sainte-Chapelle is like not other chapel I have ever visited. Yes, it was grand on the outside, but the inside had lots of surprises. Though the lower chapel is smaller and not as grand as the upper chapel, it is still very colorful and ornate.
Though this little window pales in comparison to those upstairs, it is still a work of art by any standard of measurement.
