Jo’s Monday Walk17-Wk02
Last week I showed this archway as seen from
the main Square in Brugge.
This view is from the canal side of the archway,
as we walked back into Market Square.
And if you happened to look up whilst in the arch
you will see this remarkable ceiling.
Through the arch and to the left is St Basil’s Basilica.
Upon entering St Basil’s I was immediately drawn
to a life-like wooden statue of Jesus…
The pelican was/is a symbol for
Christ and the Eucharist.
My final photo is of Pietà.
In many Cathedral there are wardens/security staff
ensuring that visitors remain quiet.
No such staff were on duty during my visit
and there was no need to ask anyone to be quiet.
It is/was a very sombre atmosphere in the
Holy Blood Chapel of St Basil’s.
My source of information about some of these images is:
I cannot recall if flash photography was allowed
in the Holy Blood Chapel.
My photos were taken using slow (1/30 sec) shutter speed,
I guess like many locals and tourists
I light a candle before leaving.
I know I said last week that this would be
my last post of Brugge walk.
I will try, again, to make next week’s my last Brugge post.
