Our Word View - Venue

What is Our Word View?  A collaboration between two friends who lost touch over the years but have reconnected online.  We share a love of the ocean, photography, quotes, animals and family.  Often times our photographic interpretations for the word of the week are very similar.

This week  the word venue was chosen for our photographic interpretation.  I hope you will go over to Our Word View and see what Liz shares this week. 

I immediately thought of my trip to Washington D.C. when I saw the prompt that Liz chose for this week.  I have been thinking about DC a lot lately.  My son just returned from a whirlwind class trip to DC.  He and his classmates were able to see so much of the city.  Much more that what n and I saw during our trip.  I would love to return to DC and explore the history again.  

In thinking of the word venue my mind wandered to a long trek we took through the back roads of DC.  We were in the search of a very special site and we certainly were not disappointed when we finally approached our destination. 

The Washington National Cathedral is a sight to behold!  It is absolutely magical.  At first glance through the wall it looks like an enchanted castle.  Perhaps the home of a fairy princess.  

Then you see the magnificence of the structure and it takes your breath away!

Within the rock wall is a courtyard with a reflecting pool and fountain.  The perfect place to cool off before entering into the holy space. 

The grandeur of the interior of the cathedral simply could not be captured in a photograph.  Can you imagine choosing the National Cathedral as the venue for a wedding or funeral.  I'm not sure the average citizen could even make such a request, but it would be amazing.

You can learn more about the National Cathedral by visiting their web site.
