Last week, my sisters and I took a day trio to Strasbourg from Basel. It was a good day.
We went to the Cathedral of Notre-Dame and marvelled at the architecture and of course took looks of pictures.
However it was sometime before I managed to allow myself to do this.
For a very long time I thought/ felt it was wrong to take pictures in Church. I am not sure where this notion originated from. I believed that Churches/other places of worship were places to be revered and to do anything as inane as taking out a camera was to be shunned.
However I have somehow changed my mind on this afternoon. There are very few places that I travel without my camera – and this appears to be a beautiful place to capture. If the rules had said “no photography” then of course I would have respectfully packed away my little Canon. Instead I joined the hundreds of tourists and worshipers snapping away with their cameras.
It being very dark inside, combined with a low shutter speed and lack of tripod made for some very blurry pictures. But, I somehow like this picture.
