Church of St. Anne

Church of St. Anne

The story goes that this Gothic church dazzled Napoleon, who said he wished he could take it home to Paris in the palm of his hand. Historians have found 33 different shapes of bricks on the facade.

It is a very intriguing and beautiful building. How will they ever get up there to fix the cross on the left spire? I like the repeating pattern of the pointed arches. V

Captivating upward thrust of the architecture. Excellent capture with razor sharp details. V

Exquisite detail on this ornate church. A sharp and clear image works well against the gray sky. "V"
