The Mosque Cathedral for Monochrome Madness Week 47

The Mosque Cathedral, Cordoba Spain
The Mosque Cathedral, Cordoba Spain 

Last week I showed you the Mosque Cathedral, here is a view from the Mosque area into the Cathedral. While the Mosque is lite with small lights in the traditional candle holder hanging from the ceiling the Cathedral is lite by large windows in the dome. You can see the dramatic difference.

There is a man standing near the left side of the frame, his presence gives a sense of size. He is difficult to see with the lighting, and of course this size of image; his feet planted flatly on the ground, but his head is tilted up as he is looking towards the arches and the ceiling, trust me when I say there is a look of awe on his face. The mix of architecture, the size, the detail in the paintings and carvings, and the fact that some of this has been around for at least a 1000 years is impressive, even daunting. Impossible to show in a single image, and for me impossible to describe in a few short sentences. If you get a chance you should visit the Mosque Cathedral for yourself.

I have submitted the image for Monochrome Madness, a weekly blog post by Leanne Cole, she is up to Week 47. Forty-seven continuous weeks on monochrome images submitted by various photographers around the world. For me it keeps me thinking and processing, at least, some images in black and white. Hop on over to her blog to see more black and white images.
