Elemental

Sant Miguel Bench

In Engolasters, Andorra.

A peek inside St. Michael’s Church, built during the 11th and 12th centuries in the small country nestled in the foothills and slopes of the Pyrenees Mountains.  Though it is small and simple, the church is impressive in its own right, given its location and age.  Visitors are not allowed inside the church, so I had to aim my camera through an actual hole in the wall (which explains the way the shot is framed), cross my fingers, and take a shot.  I wasn’t even sure what I would capture, if anything.  The inside view of basic stone and wood reflects what the exterior is pretty much like as well…stone and wood put together to make a structure that stands the test of time, weather, and God knows what else.  It’s a great contrast to the big, ornate displays of the massive cathedrals that essentially serve the same purpose.  This place was more like a Quaker meetinghouse.
