Day trip down to Leiden! Lillian and I explored the scenic city in its autumn glory; the classic windmills, reflective canals, and the Pieterskerk, the giant “unfinished” church that looked as though several architects attempted it anyway.
We only discovered the Museum Boerhaave an hour before it shut, and it has quickly shot up to one of my favourite exhibitions. The science museum held a treasury of scientific discoveries, gifts from the Netherlands to the world. Our first stop was a replica of the Anatomical Theatre. Projected through the skeletal audience members was the evolution of our desire to know more about our anatomy, our environment, our universe. I couldn’t capture the light projection, so I have pinched a few pics from their website, but the one of my arm being dissected is all me (well you know...). I’ll definitely be going back to explore the rest of the galleries! #leiden#livinginthenetherlands#daytrips#aussietourists#windmills#churchesoftheworld#pieterskerk#sciencemuseum#humancuriosity
Connecting ANYONE, anywhere to a life-changing relationship with Jesus. That is our passion, but when you put a face to that it changes everything. Meet Blessing, she was baptized a couple weeks ago @freedommombasa. She is only 7 years old and her life will forever be changed because of her relationship with Jesus! That is worth celebrating every single day.
Saint Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin, Ireland ⛪🇮🇪
Founded in 1191 it is the tallest church in Ireland (43m spire) and the largest. Jonathan Swift, famed author of Gulliver's Travels was Dean of the Church for many years. 📚

"The whole business of adults going to church filled Anna with suspicion. The idea of collective worship went against her sense of private conversations with Mister God. As for going to church to meet Mister God, that was preposterous. After all, if Mister God wasn’t everywhere, he wasn’t anywhere. For her, churchgoing and “Mister God” talks had no necessary connection. For her, the whole thing was transparently simple. You went to church to get the message when you were very little. Once you had got it, you went out and did something about it. Keeping on going to church was because you hadn’t got the message or didn’t understand it or it was “Just for swank”.
A Franciscan church is a popular tourist destination in Maribor ⛪️Originally a monastery dating from the 12th century, this red-bricked cathedral was built in its place with a two-towered, three nave basilica between 1892 and 1900, according to a design by Viennese architect Richard Jordan and was dedicated to 'St. Mary Mother of Mercy'.

It’s #sunday so it’s time for another #picuture in my project #churches_at_night . This time there is little about the church it self but the process of taking the picture. So I took the image today, it was freezing cold it rained and it was windy. I’ve tried multiple angles and vantage points but the best was from the entrance of an graveyard. Let’s be honest being at a graveyard at night in the dark is definitely not my preferred place to take an image. But I made it and I’m quite pleased with the result. As the second image it is an panorama made from 6 images. Each image was shot with a shutter speed around one minute, an aperture of 5.6 and an ISO of 100.
