Cathedral of Saint-Sauveur

This is a series of pics from my birthday weekend in June from Bruges, Belgium.

From the top of the Belfry (as promised in yesterday's pic), the city is before you!
Here you see the
Cathedral of Saint-Sauveur, one of the largest and oldest churches in Bruges, mostly Gothic in style.  Construction started in 1280 and ended in 1350.

[Today I'm in Atlanta.]

Groovy sepia treatment, Ginn. I love the detail in the image too.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Sir Andrew! smile
Lovely Toning here Granny! wink
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Sweetie. smile
Great view, like the B&W
Ginnie Hart: Glad you like it, Aussie. Thanks.
This looks very crisp. Nicely done!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Martin.
Good tonal range Ginnie, nice and clear definition. Cathedral looks pretty straight - they must have lost the hang of it later on with the Belfry. ;o) Mike
Ginnie Hart: HA! So true, Mike. smile

Lovely tones, Ginnie! I like this one very much. Thank you for showing us your lovely and favorite town in Belgium!
Ginnie Hart: You are so welcome, Kay. It's hard to contain my excitement (or have you noticed?!). smile
Great view and it looks good in b/w. I like the subtle tones.
Ingrid
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Ingrid. Tomorrow I'll show it in color. smile

What a panoramic view. Very nice, and I love the colour conversion.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Fehinti.
Great mono Ginnie and what a clear view... not too many steps ? smile

Towers grow on that cathedral like warts on a warthog. Even towers on the tower. The sharpness of this picture goes very well with the arial view.

So you climbed some towers there in Brugge and people call you Granny grin a young sprite of a girl like you? Maybe ChaCha needs some glasses.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Any woman in her 60s gets to be called a Granny, I guess! Nacha and I decided a long time ago that she actually could be my g'daughter, so I've been her Granny ever since.

How did you know, Louis, that those towers on towers totally intrigued me and will be tomorrow's post!!!

Gorgeous. I like the angle, with the church tower just right above the horizon.
Ginnie Hart: Actually, Ruth, that was my favorite thing about this pic. How did you know?? smile Thanks.

Sorry, my URL was wrong. I've changed it!
Ginnie Hart: Great! Thanks. smile
Ohh! Ginnie, I like the style of your photos. In your images this your stamp/mark. I am sure that if a day in another place I see a photo as this... without a doubt would say that it is of Ginnie! smile
Ginnie Hart: It's my signature, right? smile You're so sweet, Jose. I like the way you think. smile
.....and I love rooftops.
Ginnie Hart: I do, too, Helen. Thanks. smile
Fabulous! I love the vintage postcard feel to this. (:o)
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Roz.
Lovely shot of the whole city. Very nice.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Saratu, for stopping by and commenting.

Ginnie Hart: You'd be in heaven there, Les, with your camera!!! smile

very beautiful scene from up there! it's so cool to see construction of buildings measured not in years, but in DECADES. things were so different back then.
Ginnie Hart: Absolutely, Alex. It blows my mind to think of it! Thanks for backtracking. smile
