Cathedral Cologne

Posted by Nandan (Zurich, Switzerland) on 24 December 2011 in Architecture.

The windows , which date from different periods of the cathedral's construction come alive, in the play of their colors and imagery.The Gothic dimensions of the cathedral make this play of colors seem like the result of divine intervention: a proclamation of the victory of light over darkness. Article
The 11,500 squares of glass in 72 colors fill the 20-meter-high window.Although the artist -- who is one of the world's most expensive living artists -- waived any fee, the costs of materials and mounting the window came to around €370,000 ($506,000). However the costs were covered by donations from more than 1,000 people.

I do not regard myself as a photographer. I'm merely a guy who enjoys capturing all the memorable scenes that I encounter in my everyday life. Perhaps, it's like a traveller hoping to record his memorable journey, but in my case, it's the journey of my life ... If I can record my encounters in such a way that they leave an image on the mind of myself and other viewers, it's a tremendous joy and some accomplishment...
If you could spare some time, please do give any comments, constructive criticism, tips and suggestions that will help me become a better photographer. (I understand only English and Hindi).
