Remains of the Day



Ruins of St. Paul's - Detail, originally uploaded by Em Dy.

What's left of the St. Paul's Church in Macau is just the facade. Its image is the most representative of Macau.

Had thought about putting up a photo of St. Paul's in Macau. So glad I didn't. Your photo is sooooooo much better than any of it that I've got! :)

Wonderful!

What an exquisite building this must have been. Reminds me of the Library of Celsius in Ephesus.

I did Photo Hunt today, too. I hope you get a chance to visit and leave your link!

YTSL, thanks. I'm sure your photos look great too.

June, my thoughts exactly.

Pamela, this is just one of the many heritage sites in the area. Go visit!

Earthlingorgeous, it's really surprising that only the facade's left.

Julie, thanks.

Mrs Mecomber, I haven't been to the place you mentioned. But if it's anything like this, any photographer would go crazy.
