Domes

For about a year I have spotted these domes from afar but I had never had time to explore and find the building until recently. It turned out to be St Mary's Ethiopian Orthodox Church which was completed in 2012 and is unusual in that it is built along a commercial street surrounded by small factories. I love the domes and the sky gave them a dramatic background!

That really is a gorgeous building with so many interesting details. And, that sky is pretty special too.

You shot this church at the perfect moment with sun on the domes and with the dark cloud background. There must be a sizable Ethiopian community to support this church. Fine the community and sample their coffee, the best in the world.

The domes are fabulous Pat.. they do seem to be a feature on most orthodox churches. That's a really super spot you snapped this shot from.

It is a very good looking' building. I had a happy occasion to observe an Ethiopian wedding; if you have an opportunity, go and see--it's wonderful.
