Fascinating inside and out

I went inside this large, impressive church to view the World Press Photo 2019 Exhibition. I had already seen it in Edinburgh in August 2019, but photos and documentaries like that are worth seeing again.

The church itself was also fascinating, almost entirely destroyed in WW2 and reconstructed 1952-1968. These cabinets on the walls were intriguing – the doors are decorated inside and outside, and there are lively displays inside, some moving, some with musical accompaniment too. The photos are rather grainy as it was pretty dark inside, but enjoy the colours.

  1. Those are NEAT! I particularly like the wedding one and the stereotype Hawaiian one. I think I could spend a lot of time standing in front of any of those, opening and closing one door, the other door, both doors, and thinking. No wonder you went for a second look!
