A nicely-framed church...
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Larry.
the twigs have parted just about enough to offer a view of the church, Tom
Tom Wilson: Yes - getting any kind of pic was a problem with all the trees around - when they are in leaf it will be well nigh impossible!

Cripes, all religious garments get a Saint named after them?
Tom Wilson: No good asking me, Ray - I'm a confirmed heathen smile
Very nice point of view!
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Elizabeth.
The way you've presented it, Tom, makes it very inviting.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Ginnie

Very different architecture to what we're used to Tom
Tom Wilson: It is rather, isn't it?

And I bet it is open all day, unlike so many of our locked Churches
Tom Wilson: Most of the day, I think - it was locked the first time I tried.
It has a little of the 'rocket ship' look about it Tom.
Tom Wilson: It certainly does!
I read on the old net that Mary traditional is shown wearing a brown scapular. The colour of this building looks a bit brown too
Tom Wilson: I had to look it up too!

Lovely frame and leading lines in this picture.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Louis.
I think it was cold enough to give you the shivers.
Tom Wilson: It was not exactly a beautiful spring day! smile

a beautiful brickstone church - I have to google the word "Scapular".
Tom Wilson: I, too, had to look it up - a curious idea to associate the saint with an item of clothing, I thought!
belle eglise!! amitiés
Tom Wilson: Merci, Jean Pierre!
A lovely looking church although that tree, front right, seems to be out of place just there.
Tom Wilson: Mmm - it was a difficult one to shoot with trees everywhere!
it's a beautiful church Tom and i love your composition through the trees....petersmile
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Peter.
