In The Summer of 2014As My Friend And I Was Looking For a Country Church He Attended Every Sunday With His Mother As a Young Boy.La Bourgogne in the Summer of 2014. This country lane took me back many years of the life I lived in the village. Many a years ago, children would fill the country villages, playing and running up and down the country lanes, until the sun left the sky. Today country lanes are lonely and empty and the children have vanished. Which of the two questions would you ask?Is the world no long a safer place for our children of the new generations? or
Is Technology playing its role in this development?Though I did not grow up in France, this country lane brings memories to the life I had in villages in the 70’s when I was growing up in the village. Oh well, bring back my 70’s days, I would roll up and down this country lane with my friends. Gone the days, only memories remain as I would keep it safe – Down Memory Lane!In the end we found the Country Church! Christian-wise my family believed in their faith and we were regular attendees of our Anglican church. I grew up loving churches as buildings and trust me wherever in the world I travel, I never miss an opportunity to photograph churches. In fact they are all historical monuments. Most churches in the world have faced the first and the second world wars, and to date they are still standing.As beautiful as it is, made of stone, old, shabby, and most of all Chic!
(Old, Shabby, Chic and SACRED!) my camera did it right! And as we left the church behind us, there was already a beautiful sunset in the distance that rolled up the end of the day.
