Interesting idea for shot! Nice:)

Excellent composition! Two questions: 1) Do you think these chairs are ever all filled at one time? and 2) why don't they spring for some padded pews for the "faithful"?

Aha! I thought they looked familiar, then I saw it was one of my favorite places. I don't think I ever took a photo of the chairs, or if I did, I don't think it came out. Nice, nice, nice!!! I like the piece of the column, too. That church is really special.

Don't think I would enjoy sitting on those chairs for hours but they make a great photo.

It reminds me. The author of a fine book about labyrinths as a spiritual tool writes of how she was shocked on her first visit to Chartres Cathedral to see the famous labyrinth simply covered with such chairs.

In answer to your question I e-mailed you a photo of the answer.

Good thing you got them all empty, so much nicer.
