240. Intersection

This is the Holy Shrine in Gretna that I posted earlier (much earlier).  If you can recall, I took the image from the car on the interstate.  I finally decided to go up there to see it up close and what a pleasent surprise I got.  It was just beautiful.  One of the cool things about the shrine was the running water – on the outside of the structure you can see the water flowing towards the shrine, once inside if you look on the floor the water continues on both sides of the aisle and finally ends up in front of the first pews on both sides.  The noise of the running water was so soothing.  The flower gardens surrounding the structure were also just beautiful.  After looking through my themes I still have to fulfill, I decided to put this under intersection, look at both pictures and notice all of the intersections in the roof and ceiling areas…
