OK...so, here's another one.
This is from the Pan-Orthodox Vespers tonight at a Romanian Orthodox Cathedral.



The Cross that was decorated with flowers, had an actual relic of THE TRUE CROSS!!!  How cool is that!?!

I laid my own cross upon it....

Not much different from the typical interior of the rural Podlachian church. Maybe slightly bigger than the normal one.

Just the same. I love the crucifix to the right. What is that small structure on the left side in front of the icon stands?

Such blue-painted wooden churches are quite common there.

Taking into account that most of that Churches were built in the Eastern Catholic era or slightly later (Russian neobaroque) - I have to agree. Luckily newly built churches have more traditional iconography.

I've actually developed a liking to more "Western" looking iconography over the years. I used to make quite a stink out of it but now, I quite like it. I love the look of that church. Inside and out. Glory to God.
