Any of you on Reddit?

Here’s my reddit account (treyratcliff)… if you are on there too, drop it below in the comments! I spend a bit of time over there every day! It’s wonderfully distracting! 🙂

Daily Photo – Under the Basilica of St. Thérèse, Lisieux

After the adventure with so many great people in Paris, Tom and I rented a car and started a little road trip through Normandy. We ended up here in Lesieux, thanks to sweet sweet Stuck On Earth. The cathedral is quite amazing, and, if you go, don’t forget to go look at this extremely ornate chapel underneath the larger one. The intricate tilework must have take ages…

    I give a WOW to this shot,but also the designers and workers who would have spent years in this place,many on there backs placing those little tiles on the ceilings. I remember in 1970 in Rome I visited a Cathedral, and under was a huge Church which again had a small church under it, it was truly fascinating. The dutch Nuns told me that in the early days that was the original ground level, of that part of Rome.

    Great shot, but watch out in the text and in the tag you should correct the name of the town, it is Lisieux, not Lesieux, nor Liseaux.

  • Maria Falvey

    Colors, patterns, textures… WOW!

    Hi Trey, thank you so much for taking this beautiful shot!! I found my grandfather’s WWII diary (he served as a US medic/psych) and read that he visited this site in ’45. He was “impressed with the mosaics. It must have taken ages.” Thank you for showing me what he had seen through his eyes!!
