Church window

Click to enlarge
.

I took this natural monochrome in the very dim interior of the Notre-Dame de L'Arche d'Alliance church in Abu Ghosh on Friday. I was taken by the way these windows high up on a wall seemed almost to "float" in the darkness but what really delighted me was something I never noticed at all until I got home and began sorting through my images from the day's photowalk. Click on the image to enlarge it and then look in the top right corner of the window to see what a fun little surprise I received.

Once you've done that swing by Monochrome Weekly for more black and white shots from around the world.

Strange window, strange effect. Seems like it faces concrete.
And what IS it about those little critters that they stick to church windows?! Just yesterday I made a draft post of one of them clinging to a chapel window.

Nice warm spot with food flying by. Spiders don't get a look-in.

Hi Robin, who would think that a simple window would make a nice mono effect.

Carly said...

Neat windows and it looks great in black and white!

Lots of black in this b&w. And a window, too! Guess you and I were visited by the same photo muse.

THE perfect example of less is more!

Mojo said...

Yeah, what Daryl said.

And either that's a really small window, or those are really, really big bugs!

Wow! I really like the stark lighting and shading in this one. Just a series of squares set against the darkness.
