Happy Easter

Happy Easter

I have created the Easter Story using 25 photos of Christian Art and have uploaded them all to my Blog this morning. Beginning with a beautiful stained glass image of the Last Supper, continuing with interrogation of Jesus, the scourging, the Crucifixion, the anguish of Mary, his Mother, the Resurrection, and a Blessing.
I am also sharing a poem I wrote years ago.

Good Friday

I watched
as they beat Him,
and I wanted to hear him cry out.

I stood by
as they accused Him,
and I wanted to hear Him protest.

I followed
as he climbed the hill,
wanting to see him flee.

I cringed
as they hammered the nails,
and I wanted to cry out.

I stared
as they raised him on a tree,
and I wanted to protest.

I stayed
as the sky grew dark,
though I wanted to flee.

I listened
as he forgave me,
and I began to weep.

I saw
as I looked into his eyes,
and I believed.

Great Brehat

Great Brehat

I have mentioned previously that in order to identify photographs of communities, I usually take a quick picture of the signs as I enter each town. Unfortunately, I didn't do this when travelling the Great Northern Peninsula during my first trip there in 2004. I did take a photo of a small church which said St. Carols just before the sequence of images I am uploading to my Blog this morning. Hopefully, these have been identified correctly.  They weren't - a person on Facebook saw the images and identified them as Great Brehat!

According to the web, Great Brehat has less than 100 inhabitants and all I photographed there was the interesting door on a shed, boats and the harbour.   The same person told me that the fishing stages in the photos were washed away by a storm in 2011.

In the list of links I shared with you yesterday, I inadvertently linked St. Lunaire-Griquet to the backup on my hard drive instead of the active website on my web server. Sorry about that - here is the correct link along with a few other websites I uploaded yesterday:

Quirpon is another small community on the tip of the Great Northern Peninsula. It was pretty early on an overcast morning when we drove through this community but I stopped to take a few photos of the fishing stages there.

I've received several comments from people on this list stating that they are enjoying the Great Northern Peninsula/Viking Trail Series and I thank them for that. I still have quite a few photos to share from that area.

If you haven't been checking the extra images I put up on my Blog, you can now view them all on my web site Galleries. I've uploaded a few new ones since starting this series:
