Show us a snap of something that you've taken indoors.
Pretty broad subject there

That leaves a lot of room for manoeuvre! (Excuse the pun-ette.)

Let me start with this one. It's an exhibit I saw at the Museum of Modern Art in New York last year. I won't pretend that I 'got' it, but then I'm probably more of a traditionalist.

Unusual display, Martin.

Something more traditional - the Museum of The Royal Flying Doctor Service, Broken Hill, NSW:

Dining room of a restored Victorian in San Francisco. This isn't a museum; it's somebody's home. Imagine all the dusting!

This is another shot from the old bank building that houses the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto. There was even an old Foster Hewitt broadcast on the radio...

This is the museum which was our landing just before we moved, taken in about 1992. The room ahead was my bedroom for some of that time although was originally my mother's study back in 1965 until she built a new one in the 70s.

Great photos everyone. I remember Foster Hewitt! - "He shoots, he scooooores!" Love the MoMA offering.

Here's my weekly offering. An interior shot of part of the ceiling of one of the naves in La Merced church in downtown Granada, Nicaragua.


The original church was built in 1534, and has had several additions since.

SpanishLiz: about 15 years ago I spent a day at the ROM and a half-day at the Hockey Hall of Fame. Unfortunately (due to a hard drive failure) I lost all my photos of that trip, so thank you for the memories! (it's a great building, not just a "sports joint")

Mags: lovely photo. I quite like green and white together, makes everything look "clean and pristine".

This is a pic of my pine ceiling in the livingroom (which you really can't see because it's so bright outside). I did the stained glass myself. The husband "tacked" it in (rather than build an inside frame) so one day it came crashing to the floor when the patio door below it was slammed. Had to rebuild it (and yes it has a full moulding now LOL)

A picture showing the ornate ceiling and a sculpture at St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City, taken when I was there last year. I wish my ceilings looked like that!

This is a replication of a settler's log cabin by Lake Michigan. Sorry about the quality, it was taken through glass with my mobile phone.

Zorba: wow, that picture looks like something straight off the set of a "raiders of the lost ark" type movie. Very neat example of how "impermanent" man-made structures are. Love how "mother nature" has taken over the place.

JediP: Beautiful! (not sure I'd want my ceilings to be that way though - can't imagine having to build scaffolding every year to do spring cleaning LOL)

DotB: no need to apologize. If they used glass "from the period", I'm surprised you got THAT clear of an image! Love the book on the table - judging by the size of it, I presume it's a Bible?

Hi Jakeroo, I think you are right about it being a Bible but no one could get in to view it properly.
