    A fabulous picture and a brilliant take on the challenge. I love the Churchill quote and I thank you for taking the picture because as much as I love to look up at the soaring ceilings of great buildings, I get horribly dizzy (like reverse vertigo) and never quite manage to take a picture 😦

      I’m so glad you like the photo … But sorry to learn about the dizziness. In my case, I’m so ….. Um, vertically challenged πŸ˜‰, that I spend a lot of time “looking up”.

        Maybe that’s it …. I’m very tall so I have inbuilt vertigo!!!!

    A great quote by Churchill…and very interesting for us to see a bit of the hallway leading to the Parliamentary Library in Ottawa as my husband worked in the Australian Parliamentary Library for a while.

      Well ….. The tour was in French … And my French isn’t great. Sooooooo I focused my attention on the surroundings. Glad I did. Beautiful details.
