On our recent Panama Canal cruise, we visited this chuch in Costa Rica.
We had less than 20 minutes at the location and were not allowed to use flash photography. Most of my time at the church was spent photographing the gorgeous stained glass pieces, however, I did get a few of the interior which was equally spectacular.

The outside was beautiful as well.

This first image is of the top of the side as we approached the building

All shot with the Oly sp-550-UZ.

From the front - as far back as I could go w/o stepping out into the street.

One of the secondary altars. My hubby mistook my frantic "GET OUT OF THE WAY!!!" waves for one of those "stay there so I can get you in the picture" moves. *grumble*

Magnificent and well-photographed. Thanks for the splendid images. Nice tosee anotherDallasiteon the board. What's your favorite photo site in Dallas?

Thank you for the compliments, Barbarian :-)
I'm not really sure that I have a favorite photographic site here in Dallas. I've lived here all my life and because of that, I think I have become blase about what is around here.
I do like the Fair when it is in season - but this year we missed it due to the cruise.
Could you share some sites around here with me?

I'm actually in Garland, but none who is not a native seems to know where Garland is,
it is easier to say "Dallas" :-)

Thank you,

~Tiger

Garland is the non-plastic Dallas suburb, with a character and life of its own.

One think I've noticed is the large number of equestrian or cattle-related statues in the area. My wife is compiling a study of them. It's kinda ironic, seeing as Dallas never really was a cattletown, but there you are.

The downtown is kinda unfriendly to visitors, but there is some amazing architecture there. I take it you've seen the chapel at Thanksgiving square?

Non-plastic, eh? I've never thought of it that way.... but it sure has grown over the years. :-)

I was raised in Oak Cliff (born @ Baylor); hubby in Pleasant Grove.
We've been in Garland 26 of our 27 years of married life together.
All the kids born here in, as they call it, "GTown".

You are going to think me terrible, but I have never been to Thanks-giving Square.
However, 1st born and I were planning a photo-op trip to DTD this Sunday.
Perhaps we will add it to our agenda. I'm after the old red courthouse. Its a pity that so many of the gargoyles are missing and never replaced. I remember one falling onto our car hood when I was little. Scared the hooey out of my grandfather!

Regards,
