The Shrine of the Little Flower Again...

So I was up in the Troy office today and on the way home I decided to stop at the Shrine of the Little Flower in Royal Oak.  It is definately one of my favorite spots to photograph in the area.  The Shrine itself is pretty cool.  It was a little overcast, so I didn't have as much light I would have preferred though but I had enough.  Although I will admit, I do prefer a little overcast because it makes for softer lighting.
Near the Shrine there is a little garden.  This statue of Mary is there.
I think this might look cool in black and white.
I think this is supposed to be the Last Supper but they didn't have the rest of the apostles.
I really love some of the details on this building.
This is probably the coolest part of the Shrine.  I don't remember how tall it is but it does look pretty impressive in person.
Another set of doors.
This is near the tall structure.  I love the sculpture in this Shrine.  This is another form of Mary.
I think the inscription says "Making charity abundant" and it comes from Thessalonians.
A couple of the sculptures on the side of the structure.
Looking up at the Cross.
A couple sculptures on the other side.
The front of the cross.  I think this is the part of this that I like the most.  I remember the first time I saw this and it made an impact.  The more I look at it the more impressed I get.

Lovely photographs. The first picture is of St. Theresa, not the virgin Mary.
