Sunday afternoon in an art cathedral


Sunday is a day of rest, a day for the spirit, mind and body. It’s also a day for the transcendent, the Divine. Today, after my local celebrations in church for the feast of the Holy Family, I took a drive to Cork to reacquaint myself with the Crawford Art Gallery and its contents.

Here are some images I captured along the way.
