Look Up

Vaults 2003-2009: an awe-inspiring series by David Stephenson. The elegance of these structural bones is overpowering.

From the top: Choir, Gloucester Cathedral, Gloucester, England (2006); Octagon, Ely Cathedral, Ely, England (2006); Choir, Sainte-Chappelle, Paris, France (2006); Nave, Hieronymite Monastery, Belém, Portugal (2003); Chapter House, York Minster, York, England (2006).

Originally seen on but does it float.

Cathedral vaults have always fascinated me...but it's cool to see so many all together in photo form (and much easier on the neck :)

Isn't the variety incredible? It's so interesting to see them all in a row.
