When Estonian weather is good, it’s very, very good. A bright, cloudless sky brings out colors, even whites, that decorate buildings. Consider this entry the first of several about color.

Dome Church (Toomkirik, also called Lutheran Cathedral of Blessed Virgin Mary) is my favorite church in Tallinn, because its story and contents tell much of Tallinn’s history from 1240 onwards. I took this photo last Saturday in morning sunlight, and when I got back to the house and looked at it, I realized I was seeing the Estonian flag colors. Now my opinion of Toomkirik is even higher.
