Mariendome – Photography #3

Linz, July, 2018

This photography session of the cathedral was taken during the night walk promoted and carried our by Pangea. The tour started at 8pm and for about one and a half hours we are taken to the higher levels of the church, both inside and outside. We were lucky to have such a breath-taking sunset to accompany us.


This is the third part of the photography session, you can find the first and second part in the following links:

Before starting the tour

The windows

The images in the cathedral tell the story of Linz. However, a few years back, there were in need of cleaning and restoration, but when they put them back, they made a mistake. Can you spot it? If you can’t check two pictures below.

 

 

 

The windows are magnificent. The only color used to make them, is brown paint, any other color you see here, is the color of the glass. Imagine the work!!

 

 

The painted details are better appreciated here. 

 

 

 

This is considered to be the most beautiful in all the cathedral. That is why I chose it to be the header of this post.

This round structure, is where the stairs are.

Mariendome – Photography #2

Linz, July 27, 2018

The view of Mariendome is exquisite, even from far away. But once you enter the cathedral, you are transported to another world.


The cathedral was built in Gothic style, the towers as high as possible to reach the heavens.

After you check out the pictures, you will  see that it is a very large church, as a matter of fact, it is the largest in Austria. However, it is not the tallest. At the time of its construction it was not allowed to be taller that Stephandome in Vienna, thus it is 2 mts. shorter.

(I also have some photography of Stephandome, I’ll be posting soon.)


This is the second part of Mariendome’s photography session, you can find the first part here:

(Disclosure: All the photographs were taken by me, Adriana, but I am still figuring out how to watermark them all. Suggestions accepted!)


As I wrote before, the cathedral can be seen from almost all sides of the city, but here is the map, in case you need it.

Here is how it looks from Linz Castle

Mariendome – Photography #1

Linz, July 26, 2018

Part of discovering the wonderful city of Linz is marvelling by the wonderful Mariendome, or as you may also find it in dear Google, New Cathedral,

Here is the location of the cathedral, although, you might not need it, since it can be seen from almost sides of the city.

My admiration for the beauty of this place is such, that I have decided to make several photography sessions.

Petal Verses (100/100)

After 100 days of flowers rhymes compilation,

this lovely serie comes today to its final creation.

But how to properly end this long publication

after so many hours of work and imagination?

 

With a rhyme to all flowers, I am choosing to conclude,

although I know there are many I didn’t include,

but please do not think of me as picky or rude,

a poem to each flower is a quest of  large magnitud.

 

But flowers are a never-ending art to admire,

with their many shapes, colours and sizes to inquire

their presence will my poet heart always inspire,

so perhaps one day, I’ll make a new series when required.


 

Petal Verses

By Adriana

 

Waking up in the morning with lilies’ sweet scent,

then discovering coquette roses were also invited,

while the tender hydrangeas insist the day to spend,

and the playful tiger lilies have my day delighted.

 

These good morning bouquet was only the start,

later, the most beautiful columbines I’ve ever seen,

the man I love knows how to spoil my heart,

and with the flowers I like, make me feel like a queen.

 

Out on the street, flowers, which names I am not sure I know,

but all together with the giggly daisies, they greet me heartily,

I just wish they would last even when there is snow,

but it is ok, because my orchids are waiting at home eagerly.

 

In an instant the call of my family with a smile on their face

holding yellow chrysanthemums, just for me on this lovely day,

with the gesture wishing me joy, success and a life of grace,

and with the flowers making this day special since it is my birthday.

After 100 days, how do I feel? 

 

Have you even been to a magnificent play?

when at the end all actors come out in their own way,

waving thank you and good-bye but the audience stays,

hoping for an encore to aplaude and hurray!

 

Today, on the last day I am part of that crowd,

with all the flowers and poems on the stage so proud.

while a sense of accomplishment keeps singing aloud,

and with this last poem, I know this verses have finally bowed.


Thank you for reading!

Honourably Awesome

By Adriana

 

A red peony in full blossom,

don’t you think it is awesome?

 

A peony to bring richness and wealth,

but most importantly, honour and health.

 

A flowers highly respected in the great asian nations,

not only by its beauty but by its medical applications.

 

Now, without any further complication,

let me rejoice in deep celebration,

’cause tomorrow is the last of the compilation,

hoping it has fulfilled your expectations.

Everlasting Bouquet

By Adriana

 

Purple sprouts comprising a natural bouquet,

one of those that you don’t see everyday.

But in the land of the everlasting spring they stay,

and I keep on finding them everywhere on my way.

 

Yet their magnificence is not diminished or astray,

they brighten up the spirit when it is a little grey,

it takes a second to look around and find their display,

and with a smile you’ll see that everything will be okey.

Memorably Entwined

By Adriana

 

White petals, yellow pistils,

perhaps in your life you’ve seen.

White so white as a clear crystal,

yellow as yellow as the crown of a queen.

 

But in your memories collection galore,

or in those stories deep in your mind,

have you seen red stems before?

a red tree, with red branched entwined?

Attractively Trusted

By Adriana

 

As If I was looking through a microscope,

I had to come closer, since I am little myope,

to admire these flowers with exciting hope,

and make a remarkable picture of this cluster,

that is a little shy to show their glamorous luster,

and yet attracts a pollinating working ant truster.

Delicate and difficult to grow,

with a white center,  like snow,

and spoon-like petals to show,

your orchid beauty is gladly bestow.
