day 86: St. Paulus

I didn’t have much time yesterday to take pictures, but on the way to the supermarket around 10pm I took this picture of the catholic St. Paulus church which is just on the next block. I also noticed on Google Maps that there is a monastery right next door which I didn’t notice yet. Strangely enough I hardly walk down that street, although it’s the closest street side street from my own. Strange how your habits can change the perception you have of your immediate neighbourhood. When I lived in Brighton I lived a little way up a hill. I have to admit that I only once went further up the hill although I lived there for almost a year. And even then it was only because a friend suggested going there together.

  3. I like this photo, the B&W tones. The black sky with the moon. And yes, it’s true. sometimes the area where we live is photographically the most ignored. Since a few weeks I have an idea about a project “photography at km 0” . Photos taken in an area nor far from home and that can be reach by walking. This post push me to start it, not only thinking about! Grazie
