Catching the fleeting scenes of many splendored life with a camera.
'Look closely. The beautiful may be small' — Kant

Medieval Fortress.

Wandering about an old castle  you can discover curious nooks and crannies.
The walls of this gloomy old crypt must be soaked with sighs and prayers.

To me windows always have an air of mystery; actually, it's always some kind of allegory of a nexus between two different worlds. Just note how thick were the walls in those days. Someone must have spent ages looking through this window at the tree outside.

Loopholes allow a fixed pinhole, or rather "slot-hole", view of the surroundings: you stay put as the life fleets by.

  1. Well, you've brought some wonderful images to light here. In some ways they remind me of my mother's home in Ahus, Sweden, with its 13th century church. Thanks for these.

    1. Ah, those old stone buildings -- staid, solid and reliable. Today most people live in plastic-steel-glass containers.
