Monochrome - Apertures

Aperture #1: Arches.

Aperture #2: Spiral stairway through ceiling, which is floor of first floor.

Aperture #3: Charming door, disused (a.k.a. Gate of Hope, for abandoned babies. Bless those sisters.).

All three photos are taken at Chijmes, the former Convent of the Holy Infant Jesus (CHIJ), a Catholic school for girls more than a century ago. Now its chapel is used for weddings and its grounds is crawling with pubs, restaurants, retail outlets.

Quaff a Guinness at Father Flanagan's, anyone? (You might want to follow that link for an interesting related bit of history.)
