The repeating curves and lines of the window framing the similar curves and lines in the steeple is very effective!!! Great colors too!

Wow! Great to hear from you, Patrick and Sharon. Thanks for the nice feedback. The weather was perfect. I could have used a few clouds in the sky but it's hard to complain about the small stuff. Sharon, I waited in Minneapolis, Amsterdam, and Athens for hours for you. Why didn't you show?
