Mary at the Window

Yesterday I did a drive around the remains of our city, and was amazed and saddened all at the same time. However it would be naive of me to think that this hasn't also been a time of great photographic opportunity.

The Catholic Church was badly hit, I have posted photos of it before. Those photos were taken at night and it was magnificent and majestic. I think tho' that even now, with it's crumbled walls and domeless entryway it still manages to summon an emotional response that is both majestic, magnificent and horribly sad. It seems to me that there will be resources to rebuild this Church.

The former glory will probably be rebuilt, it will become a case of "remember when..." but for now, Mary waits at the window...

I have 'played' with the effects of this photo, it almost looks like it was taken when it happened, and Mary still watches from her window.

Moving on

I am exhausted by the aftershocks. They sneak up and rattle the bejesus outta ya and they're gone, kind of like a bad curry.

At the weekend I tried to dodge them, to no avail BUT I did find a few new places of interest....fixer-uppers if you will

and some old means of transport to get there!

Anyone want to tag along? Decorating ideas welcome, and a chocolate fish prize if you see me in the pix....

OR, those who may be traumatised by all the goings on in the world may prefer to mediatate, there is an option for those of you too!

So, who's going where?
