Explore #19 of ‘The Picnics & Palaces Tour’
The next morning our exploring odyssey continued with a permission visit to a beautiful chapel which is slowly decaying behind locked doors in a small Polish town.
It was another gorgeously sunny spring morning – so where better to be than inside a dark and cold disused church! The caretaker let us in, and we had just over an hour to take our shots.
The sunshine helped illuminate the faded gold-coloured interior…
Most of the chapel was built from wood, so I was extra cautious as I made my way upstairs to the most decayed parts of the chapel…
The passage of time – and the local pigeons – have not been kind to this effigy of Christ!
The old organ sits silent and forgotten…
One of the pews up in the highest part of the chapel – sad to think that this place once had need for capacity of almost a thousand parishioners, and now lies empty.
The view from the first floor balcony.
With time running out I made my way back downstairs…
…and took a few details shots.
I just had time to grab a quick team shot before we made our way back outside into the sunshine.
We thanked the caretaker, and went off to hunt down some breakfast.
As always thanks for looking. I should have another batch of reports coming very soon, so please sign up for email notifications if you’ve not already done so – link on the front page.
What a beauty! Hadn’t seen this location before – very nice lot of shots:) Not sure if have already said, but really liking the new website.
Thanks Leonie, much appreciated as always! 🙂
Very beautiful and sad. Amazing detail shots. Thank you!
