Photographer's Note

Description: The cathedral of Reims. The outstanding handling of new architectural techniques in the 13th century, and the harmonious marriage of sculptural decoration with architecture, has made Notre-Dame in Reims one of the masterpieces of Gothic art. The former abbey still has its beautiful 9th-century nave, in which lie the remains of Archbishop St Rémi (440–533), who instituted the Holy Anointing of the kings of France. The former archiepiscopal palace known as the Tau Palace, which played an important role in religious ceremonies, was almost entirely rebuilt in the 17th century.
It's also on the list of the World Heritage Committee UNESCO.

An architectural creation that big I could not take one photo without something running out of the compostion. For that reason I tried to "zoom" in on details or objects. This one is rather large detail and has a nice felling of repetition. This vision could be a good example about the sort of look and feeling you get when being there.
