My thousands of pictures from Italy of church domes and interiors is probably a big clue that I love church architecture. So, for the 99.9% of the time when I can’t be in Italy snapping every square inch of something like the Capella Palatina at the Palazzo Reale in Palermo. . .
. . . instead I have a pinboard of Church pictures. Naturally, this is really just a subset of my ever-growing “I want to go there” list. (And do feel free to stoke my lust for travel still further, if you have favorite pictures of spiritually-themed architecture you want to post in the comments.)
Speaking of places I want to go–imaginary ones, in this case–I’ve been completely loving Elizabeth Bear’s Eternal Sky pinboard. It is a source of stunning visuals tied to her Eternal Sky “Silk Road Fantasies,” the first of which is the utterly awesome Range of Ghosts, Shattered Pillars and Steles of the Sky.
