The bird and the church

pieterskerk uit db 079 web jpg

The bird and the church, for me they seem like opposites from eachother. The bird representing freedom and the church representing strict rules and oppression.

But I am also atracted to churches, especially the old ones. Their many beautiful details, so carefully designed and crafted speak to me a lot. Like this churchdoor, that belongs to the Saint Pieterschurch in Leyden. I love the color of the door, the window above it and the posts around the door.
