This thread is replete with extraordinary images of Catholic temples and like any other such thread (were there to be parallel ones filled with photographs of Eastern or Oriental Orthodox or Eastern Catholic temples), the incredible beauty, majesty, and workmanship portrayed awes the viewer.
There is, however, a concern that should be noted. As I recently pointed out on my home forum, when photos are posted using the image function ([img:]), instead of merely linking to the URL of the photo, as was done here, the images draw on the bandwidth of the site from which they originate - effectively 'stealing' that site's bandwidth. It's considered bad form on the net and is also the reason that some such pics disappear w/in a day or so, to be replaced by red 'x's in a small box. (Because, most photo-based sites, most commercial sites, and other sites that are on top of things, use software that breaks the bandwidth connection once it is discovered - and most such perform periodic - as often as weekly, in some cases - scans to detect these intrusive acts).
A sufficient draw on the bandwidth of a site can effectively cause it to shut down, can result in it being shut down by the domain owner for exceeding the bandwidth allocated to it for a given period, or can result in monetary charges being levied against it by the domain owner for exceeding its allowed bandwidth usage in a given period (usually a calendar month). These are serious issues, particularly for small sites operating on shoestring budgets.
Additionally, posting image links versus URL links raises copyright issues for the site to which the images are posted.
I realize that words, when accompanied by an image available for immediate, simultaneous, viewing trump even Confucious' famous saying regarding the value of pictures over words ... but, there is a need to be a good internet neighbor (and for forums to protect themselves legally)
