Kreml the Norwegian way

One late summer evening last week there finally came some hints of blue on the sky.
We immediately saddled up for a local photo safari, armed with coffee, chocolate buns and cameras.
I'd never had a close look on this particular church before.
It's built in 1938; thorough Art Deco style.
From this special angel I found it had a Kreml-ish wild mix about it.
I must return for further exploration of the inside. The stained glass windows look interesting. Makes me wonder what the architect has done with the ceiling.
Don't you like finding treasures like this just " around the corner of your home"?

Absolutely lovely! I posted about that in my world today. Me, taking a left turn instead of the usual right and ended up in a totally different area! Fun isn't it? My camera makes me see totally new things!

Love all the angles f the rood of this house. They make for such an interesting image. The blue sky is nice addition to the shot.. We finally got a beautiful blue sky here today. Genie

We are conditioned to believe that art or treasure is in far away places. Yet we neglect our immediate world a mere few minutes away. Divine architecture like this is close, and beckons us to find it for a photo shoot - or just to admire. A wonderful find!

Not only is there deep, rich red on the trim of the church building, but there is also a hint of red in the sky!


For red my affection is great,
It’s puce and chartreuse that I hate.
I’m fond of cerise,
It makes a nice piece
Of clothing that looks just first-rate.

This is definitely interesting, Felisol, and to think it was just around the corner from where you live.

I am also interested in your chocolate buns that you mentioned...

Someday soon, I hope you share photos of what you find inside.

Yup! In order to find a treasure, I must look, see, observe. In a way is means climbing out of myself, and paying attention to what else is going on in the world...
THANK you, Felisol!

The filigree cross against the sky is striking.

Oh, how I love, getting into the car and heading out on a road trip, with Tom. It is always exciting, to find, some unexpected treasure like this beautiful Church.
Blessings my dear Sister.

Is that a chimney? The white clouds looks like smoke.

Are people feeling a sense of peace returning to the country ?

Roan said...

There are so many wonderful angles. Yes, this is a treasure. I wish you a week of blue skies.

Oh, and yes, the rose is real. The velvet background is the night sky.
