Jerusalem is full of small and big wonders. Although I normally try to avoid the big crowds, we still went and managed to go in with at least not that many visitors. The place is highly secured of course. Definitely fascinating, I have never seen so many different Christians from all over the world. It was kind of an exotic mix. Another image in the CI.
Wki writes: [...] The Church of the Holy Sepulchre (also called the Church of the Resurrection or Church of the Anastasis by Orthodox Christians) is a church in the Christian Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem. The church contains, according to traditions dating back to at least the fourth century, the two holiest sites in Christianity: the site where Jesus of Nazareth was crucified, at a place known as "Calvary" or "Golgotha", and Jesus' empty tomb, where he is said to have been buried and resurrected. The tomb is enclosed by the 19th-century shrine, called the Aedicule (Edicule). The Status Quo, a 260-year-old understanding between religious communities, applies to the site. [...]
Almost no movement on PF these days, the site is dying.
I like the B&W but also the warm colors of the CI
BabaCam (2019/02/12 10:05:21): It is really so bad at the moment. If folks do not stand up and write comments, also to all the users and not just to some, show images regularly, share their thoughts, answer to comments, share a thought without waiting for a comment etc. etc. etc. ... well here we go, this is PF these days. It reminds of me of the club life that is slowly dying out, not only in the photo world. Let's be honest, also Flickr or TE, you always see the same folks ... and nothing really new comes along - this is my impression from the outside, maybe it is not true either, can't say for sure as I am not involved (just visiting some folks here and there out of interest). Yet fact is that they're much bigger so it does not come over this way as we have it now these days on PF.
I do a bit of 500px but so far very lazily, too lazy to really build my fan club although it slowly starts to kick in. It is really well made but at the same time the photos look a bit the same all pretty glossy type so this is why I still find places like PF more interesting. I like the story telling aspect which gets lost on 500px - in my eyes, from my lazy stand point.
Shame, also for all the work some of us have done in the past and up until now. We'll see. I am still in the boat.
Two fine shots accompanied by a good informative note. B&W works well in the main photo, where you have also managed the light perfectly. I also like a lot the warm colours and atmosphere of the CI.
These are much more than photos ...
You caught a fascinating atmosphere in both pictures and the viewer literally can feel the particularity, the sacredness, of this place. In both pictures the wonderful light for me is THE photographic feature. Really wonderful!
Greetings from an a bit springlike Westphalia - with still frosty nights!
