  1. These look like a pipe organ. I almost expect it to play me a tune… And I can picture their heads bobbing up and down. I’m thinking seriously of turning to Architecture for a change. I believe I have all the landscapes, water falls and forests I can handle; except for the forest full of sun rays, with Christ in the background bidding us all forward.

    • Well they definitely resemble some organ- that’s for sure. Hehe. I have to travel thousands of miles to see this. Would love to have an accessible place to escape into where I live.
