Hello ....... I must ask, have you done any photo book of all your lovely pictures? It is one better than the andra.Denna is fantastic. You may have enlarged part and hung on the walls. Party Pictures ... Kramizzzzzzz
Wow, Lotta--coming from you, that's high praise indeed. I love your photos! I haven't had any photo books made, but I'd like to. It's a bit more complicated on this side of the world, but I'll try to get a few organized into a book :) Thanks for the suggestion!
The texture of the stony walls and the simple rock and wood furnishes really pictures the simplicity of the people who live or used to live in that Convent..
Yes, I agree--the texture is what makes this photo special. Surprisingly, though, the women who lived in this convent, at least in this part of it (a section is still in use, and only about half the place is open to visitors), were anything BUT simple :D It cost a pretty penny to "buy" a spot in the convent, and only the very affluent could afford it. The "cells" were more like sprawling apartments, with sitting rooms, kitchens, servants' quarters... The works. Funny; that's not the vision I had of convent life :)
I'm enjoying the viewpoint of this photo
Interesting, isn't it? Feels like furtive peeking :)
