Black & White Sunday: Ceiling

Just a couple from the archives, not the best examples, but perhaps something a little different. First up, from a mosque in Turkey:

…and the end wall and part of the ceiling from a wooden church in Maramures, Romania:

  1. I particularly love the first one for the faintness of the lines and the pattern.

  2. I like them both. Obviously need a ceiling with a lot of detail to work in black and white.

  3. Great ceilings, such intricate work. Nice shots Sue.

  4. The first one is almost dizzying, Su. I think I’d prefer the second in color, as I can imagine how lovely it must be.

  6. If it were in colour, I would probably fixate on colour, but now I am looking for a story on the church’s ceiling. These are terrific examples. Many thanks, Sue. I love the mosque’s abstract theme.

  7. Magnificent detail and intricacy. B/W works very well here.

  8. Is the ceiling of the Maramures church also wood? You’ve sent me searching for mosque ceilings I may have from Turkey!

  9. I imagine the frescoes stunning in colour. Reminds me- I have some I never did use from Florence. 🙂 🙂 I’d done so many posts I thought it time to move on. Torn between a spider’s web and a parasol for the first, Sue. Good weekend? You feeling relatively fit?
