When I walked into St. Mary Roman Catholic Church in High Hill, Texas yesterday to photograph one of the Painted Churches of Texas I was surprised to see this giant scaffolding in place for a restoration of the church's ceiling. I didn't get to take the shot of the ceiling I was there for but I found the scaffolding structure fascinating! I was reminded of restoration projects I have seen on television of some of the great Cathedrals in Europe.
