Love the illuminated pews, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: The light was lovely in that moment, Ray!
Wow! I like the texture to the photo also.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Hollie.
Great, Ginnie,the chairs look expectant...
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Frank. The light does see to have that effect.
Oh it's so beautiful - and you've caught some very Heavenly light!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. I'm always excited when I see light like this inside a church! smile

The light is beautiful and the floor is wonderful. Such an old church and such a beauty. Love the texture.
Ginnie Hart: We have such fabulous memories of the places we visited while in England. We are so lucky! Bedankt, MLMA.

Very agreeable Ginnie: this picture has a calm atmosphere, as indeed did the church
Ginnie Hart: You and Lisl took us to some splendid places, Chris! Thank you, again.

As I have never seen it look before, Ginnie - you have done it proud
Ginnie Hart: As I just told Chris, you took us to some splendid places, Lisl. We'll never forget them! Thank you, again and again.

Really a beautiful "divine" light
Ginnie Hart: That's what it felt like, Marie. Merci.

Loving the play with light.. makes it seem very heavenly.
Ginnie Hart: It was a lovely place to "feel" heavenly, Tracy. smile Thanks.
Rustic simplicity and solitude
Ginnie Hart: Sometimes these smaller, cozier spaces are the best for me, Martin, when I think of "church."

Three by three, all neatly in rows, standing to attention. You have done a good job of making the chairs as surrogate parishioners the subject. I like this a lot.
Ginnie Hart: When you say it that way, Mike, it does feel like parishioners are there! Thank you.

That remembers me of an examination, Ginnie. Maybe God will be the examiner.
Ginnie Hart: Very interesting point, HF. I like that. smile
Love the simplicity.
Ginnie Hart: I do, too, Michael.

With those chairs it looks like a classroom Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, it does, Chad. I suppose it's appropriate?
That's a dingy little church!
No cushions? wink
Ginnie Hart: HA! I think this is the part where you have to "pay attention," LC. smile
We set out the chairs and no one turned up!
Ginnie Hart: Or else they're there and we just don't see them, Tom? smile
Love the light on the chairs, as though they are in attendance, in the absence of people - very nice Ginne! smile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Martin. You do get the sense that "they" are there. smile
Shine a little light on me
Ginnie Hart: Oh, dear. Now I'll be singing that the rest of the day, John. smile
Wonderful with this mystical light Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: It did seem appropriate for the church, Richard. Merci.
I will take the shady spot.
Ginnie Hart: You can take your pick, Mary. It's yours! smile

They will have to scurry around if 12 people were to turn up for the service - or share chairs, with one bum in the air.

From 1352 - 600 years before I was born. You don't see old buildings like that in SA.
Ginnie Hart: I suppose it would be the right size for a Sunday School class, Louis? smile And yes, that's VERY OLD!
That is really beautiful, Ginnie. Very special.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Pauline. It was very special to me! smile
That really does look an old church, right up my street so to speak.
Ginnie Hart: Exactly up your alley, Brian, for sure. We're birds of a feather....! smile
This is terrific Ginnie! love the use of lightening!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Ronky.
A fine painterly picture Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Bill. It was a delightful moment.

They don't seen to be expected many worshippers, do they? wink I like the light here.
Ginnie Hart: Not on a Friday, Alan! We were lucky the church was open.... Thanks.
That is very nice. Great light.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Michael.
great shot. love those old looking images in the corner, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Ayush. I'd go back and check out that corner more closely if I had the chance!
beautiful composition of light on thee chairs Ginnie... it has all of those names because it has been around for a very long time i'll bet....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: My guess is they just need to shorten it to All Saints, Peter, and be done with it. smile

a wonderful, intimate corner in a church, only for prayers ...
Ginnie Hart: Only for prayers, indeed, Philine. Bedankt.

but I miss the kneelers.
Ginnie Hart: HA! You're catching on very quickly, Philine. smile
I see heaven's light is shining through.
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Jacquelyn. It made my day!
It's hard to even get your mind around something from 1352! Love the capture of the light streams...
Ginnie Hart: You know that age like this still blows my mind. I don't think I'll EVER get used to it, Robin! Thanks.
