Calicajun,

Alex

Thank you for viewing and the comments. This church is quite eye-catching all ove the village and over a large area.

There is a reason why they built churches at high locations, of course. Before electricity the bells had to be audible over as much land as possible

A 9:16 aspect ratio picture of the church, that makes me anyhow think of fairytales and other stories

Alex,

Thanks. Know he's working on his second doctorate. That involves some teching.

With that sharp eyes, ability to read intensions and above all vaste knowledge, it wouldn't surprise me if he's writing art critics - Just a guess though

A voice we miss. Why don't you write him some words

Cheers

Torgny

Haiti disaster 2010.

New light
on a pretty building. Shame on France and USA

Voltaire: A Poem on the Lisbon Disaster 1755


Oh unhappy mortals! Oh wretched earth!
Oh dreadful gathering of so many dead!
The eternal sport of fruitless griefs!

Mistaken philosophers who cry: "All is well",
Approach, look upon these frightful ruins,
This debris, these shreds, these unhappy ashes,
These scattered limbs beneath these broken marbles;

A hundred thousand wretches swallowed by the earth,
Bleeding, torn, with hearts still beating,
Buried beneath their roofs, ended without help
Their lamentable days in the horrors of their suffering!

Are you going to say in the face of the semi-formed cries
Of their expiring voices, in the face of the spectacle
Of their smouldering remains: "It is the effect of necessary laws
That require this choice of a God that is free and good"?

Will you say, on seeing this pile of victims:
"God is avenged, their death is the price of their crimes"?
What crime, what fault have these children committed
Broken and bleeding on their mother's breast?
