A slightly exaggerated “Gothic” version of a moonlight cathedral in Santiago de Compostela… Enough to give you the creeps?

My grandfather was a serious amateur photographer in the ’20s and ’30s, leaving me a legacy of stereoscopic pictures and equipment. The bug passed through the genes to my father and to me. I started taking pictures seriously when I was 11 and I spent most of my teenage years in and out of the darkroom. University, work and kids put photography on pause but my first digital camera in 2006 re-kindled my interest. RB has given me a vehicle for sharing my work and for learning so much.

    I’ll have to agree with the other. Love it! Perfect for a little trick or treating wouldn’t you say. (hope that isn’t offensive to say about a cathedral…if it is, no offense intended) :)

  • Kristen, you are sooo PC! :-) Halloween is from “All hallows Evening” or “All Saints” so I have got it on firm authority that it’s not going to offend anyone…. :-)

    Thanks George! I have just realized in chatting with people from all over the world that things I think everyone has heard of or knows are just limited to my little world here, so I try to be careful not to unintentionally upset peole (we see that happen alot :))
