Church doors, John, and a bench


A blog-friend from Scandinavia came to visit today!
We walked down to the local monastery.
I took this shot through the church doors (while sitting in the church)  to catch a beautiful wooden bench resting on ancient stones.
(You can enlarge this photo a lot to see details.)

That's John the Baptist on the left with his message, in Hebrew.

Even though it leads into the inside, feels as if much more opens up behind that door.

Please have a good new week ahead.

Lots to see here, and isn't it wonderful to meet other bloggers?!

Oh, that is indeed a beautiful window, and a beautiful bench! Great find!
So - where are you from in Chicago?

Dina said...

Cloudia, yes, it is even more of a pleasure now.

Robert, you know, you're right!

Ciel, yes! Spiderdama from Norway is here.

Toby, I spent my first 22 years in Chicago, living at several places on the North Side, near the lake. Pierce and then Swift School. Senn High School. First 3 semesters at Navy Pier, then to the Circle Campus when it was built, before transferring out of state.
And YOU?

toby said...

Oh, how organized of you! I spent my first 17 years in Chicago, also on the North Side, in Lincolnwood. I came to Israel on a one year program after high school, fell in love with the country, and have pretty much been here (with a short 3 year break in Boston) ever since.
Nice to meet you again :)

Beautiful picture, elaborate bench!

Sara said...

A lovely moment captured forever. What stories those old stones could tell; wish I could hear them speaking!

Nathalie said...

How I love these blogger meetings. Glad you had a good time

Ralph said...

That is a beautiful chapel - the simple stained glass is soothing as it lets in the light and the saint with the Hebrew text is lovely. A great find!

Reader Wil said...

Yea, that was beautiful when I saw this in March!

Love the depth of field and colours on this shot Dina. Thanks for posting. There is a lot to observe in the small frame.

Kay said...

I love it that you're meeting so many blog friends, Dina.

This bench and the glas window is so beautiful and and Bible texts in this church even better. I enjoyed it very much. Thank you for spending time with us:-)
