I haven´t posted any picture for the Weekly Photo Challenge for more than a month, so today I´m gonna catch up and do four in one. All images are from my travels around Europe.
This picture is from the ossuary in Sedlec near Kutna Hora (Czech Republic). This creepy but interesting chapel is located partly under ground. The entrance is from the graveyard and you descend into the chapel on stairs. In each of the corners of the chapel there are piles of bones and the bones also decorate the chapel. There is a bone chandelier that is supposed to contain “at least one of every human bone” (found here) and the coat of arms you can see on my picture. Altogether there are bones from more than 40.000 human skeletons. If you´re interested, you will find more information about the ossuary and the origin of the bones here.
My interpretation of this topic showcases the Barrakka lift in Valletta, Malta. This 58 metres high elevator was opened in 2012 and it offers an easy connection between the city and the waterfront.
When I took this picture, I knew it would be great for some competition/challenge on the topic of green or monochrome colour. Now it´s its time to show it to the world 🙂 It was taken in Siena in Italy. I wonder whether the green bike is parked there on purpose or if it´s pure coincidence.
This is a very fresh photo. I took it today during my trip to Leek in Staffordshire, UK. It´s a path leading to a pub garden. The geometric patterns and nearly black-and-white colours caught my eye.
