  1. Wow! How beautiful old wooden church!

    I am “specialized” to shoot church photos. Why? Because I have found in them beauty, historic objects, like altars, bell towers, chandeliers and pulpits. Our most beautiful churches are on countryside. There is a curiosity with bell towers. Generally, bell towers are separated from churches and we have a reason for it.

    The most amazing things are unique poor-man statues.

    Thank you for this lovely post.

    Have a good day!
