A Mid-Week Break

 

There's always a resting place, in case you need one.

I like the angled end of the pew... who would sit there?
Ginnie Hart: Churches like this always seem to have such fun spots, Larry. I could probably start "collecting" them. HA!

This resting place looks a little uncomfortable...

But resting in a church would be a good comfort smile
Ginnie Hart: I know what you mean, Cherry. It always tickles me to see the cushions in these churches. smile

I love the red colour against the petrol blue. Nice little detail of the hymn book.
I could take a rest there and just listen.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, MLMA. These reformed churches are so full of light and often color, like ours down the street from us. You know me with these cushions and hymnals!

Ce coussin est prévu pour les fessiers fragiles...
Ginnie Hart: HA! Quite a few of us might need one these days, Martine?! smile
What a lovely composition, Ginnie!!! The colors are great!!!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. I could probably make a book on such scenes in churches! smile
the cushion really stands out Ginnie... i love the sea blue tones around it....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Peter. You can see why it caught my eye!
A wonderful composition Ginnie! I like the colours contrast.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Richard. The color contrast is what definitely caught my eye.
Great touch of red in this photograph Ginnie, very complementary.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Chad. I thought so, too!

Did you sit there and contemplate, Ginnie?
Ginnie Hart: Not that day, Lisl, but I could have!
The colors of these pews are original at least and change some traditional natural wood. Nice framing
Ginnie Hart: The colors, including the white walls and pillars, are most striking, Marie. Thank you.

Haha- what for a funny observation!
Ginnie Hart: You know me and church cushions, Philine. smile

Not something that I have seen the photo opportunity so well done you for that. I especially like the red against the blue.
Ginnie Hart: That blue-green color is one we see often in the Reformed churches, Alan. It makes me wonder if there's a significance to it or just a paint sale?! Thanks.

You are right about the colours: "Red evokes the color of blood, and therefore is the color of martyrs and of Christ's death on the Cross. Red also symbolizes fire, and therefore is the color of the Holy Spirit. Blue is the color of the sky/heaven and in some rites honors Mary." The Lutherian rose is red, blue, white and black. Red and blue are the dominant colours.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you for this lovely interpretation, Philine. It does seem to fit!

This red appears very well in this place and invited to sit!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Pat...and I agree. smile
I like the colours and light here, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Mary. So do I. smile
I like the simplicity of this Ginnie, one time when it helps to have something red in the image.
Ginnie Hart: Yes...and thank you, Brian.
just to sit there and take it all in...has such a quiet feel to it.
Ginnie Hart: Yes and yes, Robin. You know how much I love being here to see all of this!
The red certainly warms up the cool blue Ginnie. Nice capture
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, Janet. Thank you.
excellent cadrage!! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Many kind thanks, JP.

Great colour combination, though I'm not sure it is thick enough to make a long sermon more bearable ;-)
Ginnie Hart: HA! I tend to agree with you on that, Anne. smile
A perfect example of how to use red Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: That's what I thought, Bill!
I really like the colours in this, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Frank. So do I.
I LOVE this shot. LOVE it! That red leaps right out.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Michael. Shame on us if some things never catch our eye, right?!
One often needs a place to sit mid-week. I've never seen blue painted benches in church before.
Ginnie Hart: This is a bluish-green color I have found in several Dutch Reformed churches here, Jacquelyn, including our big church just 3 blocks down the street. Somehow it feels very inviting.
