Thank you both! I've found it definitely pays to walk all around a building (or at least at much as you can access)... this is from the same cathedral in Tucson that appears (bright white, with palm trees & blue sky) further back in my gallery. This area was a covered arcade on the back side, coming off an administrative building, facing out to a busy street. Certainly not the show-stopper front facade, with 2 towers and ornate doorway, etc!

Christopher-it would seem to me difficult to get the light/exposure so very even on this shot but you did an excellent job of it. I also really love the pattern and composition!
Happy New Year!

Thanks so much, Mike... I agree, that repetition of form always appeals to me, too.
