Departing from the last of the galleries, the path takes us to this overlook of St. Onuphrius.
The path is lined by several large scale photographs from across the country, both people and places.
That includes this interaction of a Canadian soldier with Afghan children during the Afghan War. Given what's now happened to the country, one wonders what will become of these children, living in a country now controlled by a group of men whose world view begins and ends in the 6th century.
More of these.
One more view of the church. We'll wrap up this tour tomorrow.
St. Onuphrius is a new one on me - just how many saints are there? Not enough, to judge by what's happening in some parts of the world.ReplyDelete
Interesting. And great final pic.ReplyDelete
Looks an interesting church. Many veterans of the Afghan conflict must be saddened by the current situation in that country.ReplyDelete
I think the same as Fun60 !ReplyDelete
The church is very pretty.ReplyDelete
@John: Catholics do have many saints.ReplyDelete
@Cloudia: thank you.
@Fun60: it is saddening.
@Gattina: I do as well.
@Italiafinlandia: it is.
Um abraço e continuação de uma boa semana.

O prazer dos livros
It is amazing that some societies are still run based on centuries old texts composed by primitive peoples, and an entire way of life is based on these words. The United States is already a theocracy in fact.ReplyDelete
Large photo like that can be quite powerful.ReplyDelete
...war is hardest on the vulnerable.ReplyDelete
I like those big photos along the path.ReplyDelete
Powerful images and nice shots of the wee church, William.ReplyDelete
The header, the 1st and last photos are brilliant!ReplyDelete
Amazing murals. Such a shame about Afghanistan. Maybe they'll move into the 7th century soon.ReplyDelete
There are many questions about the Afghan situation....past and future.ReplyDelete
Lovely outdoor photo tour ~ReplyDelete

The last photo is beautiful.ReplyDelete
@Francisco: thank you.ReplyDelete
@David: I can't disagree with that.
@Anvilcloud: they certainly can be.
@Jan: I do as well.
@Magiceye: thank you.
@Jennifer: the people of that country deserve better than to be hounded by a band of fanatics.
@Red: there certainly are.
@Carol: thank you.
@Bill: I agree
Curious location for a chapel. :-)ReplyDelete
But a good one.Delete
That first photo is a cracker of a shot.ReplyDelete
I do like how the light works in your first photograph ... just beautiful.ReplyDelete
All the best Jan
I agree. That was the photo shown on the Facebook page that drew me in to see and read the blog itself. Good shot!Delete
Yes, they stagnated. I just thought of H.G. Wells. They need a time machine.ReplyDelete
Wow. Some of the pics are really... very mighty.ReplyDelete
I like the church but it looks so dwarfed!ReplyDelete
True, but it fits in nicely.Delete
I like seeing large photos of iconic moments in time, makes you think.ReplyDelete
We live in the 21st century and in some parts of the world children know only war in their life...ReplyDelete
This >>> " ... what will become of these children, living in a country now controlled by a group of men whose world view begins and ends in the 6th century."ReplyDelete
It's a horrid thought. Those men are savages.
Very much so.Delete
