Scenes from the Past


Not finding a way to the balcony from inside the church, I went outside and found an entrance to the bell tower. Inside there was a makeshift ladder leading to the balcony. Most of the rungs were cracked or broken, but up I went testing them as I climbed higher. At the top I crawled through a small doorway and took a picture of the ceiling.
When I turned to leave I saw the doorway through which I had just come, realizeing the true treasure of my climb...

  8. HI GLEN, it is amazing how sometimes we do not find what we search and suddenlly we see what we did not look for. This happens to great photographers who can see and keep an eye on things the others do not see. This happened here and you did an excellent photo!

  14. Hi Glenn yes sometimes we need to turn our backs against wonderful things in order to turn around and see there beauty.

    And about my dog you're right he is a Vizsla. Not many people heard of them. He truely is my soulmate and is constant at my side...I have no clue what to do when the day comes when he won't be at my side...until then I'll enjoy every single second of him.
