  • Gwen Hardie Bauer

    How wonderful! Thank you for this beautiful collection of architectural photographs. Each is beautiful in it’s unique way.

  • Meatbyproducts

    Nice other than the Dale Chihuly. He should be no where near a list of amazing talent like the rest of the list.

    • Gwen Hardie Bauer

      I am not personally a Chihuly fan, but it doesn’t diminish my pleasure in this collection of photos.

    • DukeSteele

      I agree. I make church windows and respect the guy for what he does. But, hes become a one trick pony. Maybe two. He only does the flowers in the pic and also those pepper looking pieces. Although, alot of that may be because of his injury.

      • Meatbyproducts

        He does not even do them any more. His students make all of it and have for a long time. You are right he is a one trick pony and they are flogging the hell out of it her in the NorthWest.

        • DukeSteele

          You’re right. I knew about the students. So, maybe hes become another Mark Kostabi who hired painters at $7.00 an hour.

      I saw that glass sculpture up close and knew nothing of the artist at the time – it is beautiful, but I agree that most of the other ceilings are much more impressive – the el Alcazar and the Alhambra in particular.

    all of them looks awesome

    • Lori Hasselback

      Some of them looks even more awesomer than other ones looks.

    Many mosques in Iran could definitely make it to this list.

    The Sistine Chapel here is beautiful.. The Purple Room in Italy too.
