Walking around its vast halls I felt a bit like an impostor, inside the marvellous heart of a religion I couldn’t call my own. I was completely unprepared for the size of this place. Each time I looked up at the array of dazzling colours and impossibly intricate decoration I felt more and more insignificant. The Catholic Church really know how to make you feel like there must be a higher power out there!
My shot for this week’s photo challenge was taken in St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican City. Alongside the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, it must be the among the most awe-inspiring and impressive feats of human endeavour in the name of religion anywhere in the world.
