Well presented photo Ginnie

Thank you so much for posting this.... for us Lutherans. smile

Nice framing

Nicely shot, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Michael.
Thank you Ginnie
Gorgeous image for this.
Ginnie Hart: You're welcome, Elizabeth. I didn't grow up with crucifixes, so this is a rare posting for me.

Beautiful picture. Wonderful warm colours and a wonderful wall, so many details.
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, MLMA. As you know, I didn't grow up with crucifixes like this, so it's rare for me to post an image of one. You'll find out more about that next week at my V&V.
Thank you Ginnie... well done....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: You're welcome, sir, and thank you. As I've been telling the others, I didn't grow up with crucifixes like this!

Oh, I recall our visit in Freckenhorst - an appropriate photo for our highest feastday - in remembrance of all the victims in the wars of the 19th and 20 th century ...
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Philine. You would remember this. It's one of the best crucifixes I've seen, to be honest...even though I didn't grow up with them.

I really like this beautiful Christ
Ginnie Hart: It's one of the best I've seen, Marie, even though I didn't grow up with them. Merci.

It is sobering & stark Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: You'll understand a bit more about this in my V&V on Tuesday, Chris. It's a longer story than just this....
Good presendet shot! nice day to you Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Many kind thanks, Roland.

Thank you for reminding us why some of us have the day off work. This looks as though it could do with a clean up. Have a greta Easter smile
Ginnie Hart: We used to go to school for half a day on Good Friday, Alan, and then get out to go to the city's community Good Friday service. It was quite a "ritual" that I'll never forget...except we didn't have crucifixes like this.

The flecks of strong colour in the wall add to the emotional strength of the crucifiction.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Mike. The wall was part of what drew me to this particular crucifix.
I didn't even grow up. A fitting picture for this weekend
Ginnie Hart: Not everyone has to grow up, Bill, so don't feel bad. smile Thank you.
A lovely shot, Ginnie. The textures are wonderful. It doesn't matter what, if any, religion you are. There should always be a time for reflection.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Pauline, and well said. In my Protestant upbringing, we would rarely see crucifixes like this. Our crosses were always "empty."
Happy Easter!
Don't eat too much chocolate.wink
Thank God I don't live in Belgium! He he..
Ginnie Hart: Happy Easter to you, too, LC. We do love good chocolate!
What a beautiful capture Ginnie! Thank you.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Richard, and you're welcome.
Very appropriate.
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, Mary. Thanks.
That is a very meaningful crucifix Ginnie. We have a fairly tall plain wooden cross in our Baptist church but not a crucifix. Last night we had a lovely "Last Supper" celebration at our church.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Brian. Like you, I did not grow up with crucifixes, so this is still an unusual sight for me. Of all the crucifixes I have seen, this may be my favorite thus far.

For the most people in Germany Easter consists of 4 holidays, that's it. Therefore your photo is a reminder, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, HF, I know. It may be the same in the Netherlands? Thanks.
A very sensitive capture of this crucifix, Ginnie. The textures & tone are wonderful.
Ginnie Hart: This is new for me, Beverly. I'll be talking more about it in my Vision & Verb on Tuesday.... Thank you.

Memorable for today. May the grace of God be with you and Astrid.

Quite interesting: my daughter is with her boyfriend's family today. She sent me some pics of their Passover feast where they commemorated in old Hebrew style - unleavened bread, etc with the ritual prayers, etc. They are not Jewish, but Protestant. On Sunday they will have another feast, but in modern style to commemorate the rising of Christ. A very interesting way to keep the meaning of Easter weekend alive.
Ginnie Hart: I really like that, Louis. I attended one Seder feast in America years ago and will never forget it. It's a good way to remember!
Yes not only about easter eggs smile
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, John! Well said.

A lovely capture.

Happy Easter smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Cherry, and the same to you and yours.
Christian iconography leaves me cold, I'm afraid, Ginnie, but it's a fine image!
Ginnie Hart: I can understand your sentiment, Tom. I didn't grow up with iconography like this, but I've come to terms with it here in Europe.

An apt image for the day.

Unlike you, I did grow up with crucifixes a bit like this (my dad was an Anglican vicar)
Ginnie Hart: You know all about this, then, Anne. I guess you could say I'm coming to terms with this part of Christianity. smile

As crucifixes go, Ginnie, this is a very fine one!
Ginnie Hart: I used to "repel" these, Ray, but am coming to terms with them and think this may be my favorite thus far.
nice crop Ginnie. and an early weekend for me here.
Amazing textures and colors. So Ginnie! xo
