Very nice, interesting capture!
I am not sure the painting goes with the rest of the church…
Ken, this church is no longer a church. They will renovate it to be a cultural center for concerts, exhibitions, theater etc. The nave is almost completely empty.
What are the little white boxes that appear on the alter, and why is there 2 white outlines on the 2 paintings? When viewed larger, it seems that the areas in the white outlines are clearer & richer than the rest of the painting?
John, the ‘little white boxes’ are kind of post-it stickers. No idea why they were there. As I mentioned this church will change its designation. The only thing I had noticed was the white square but only when I opened the RAW images at home. I checked those RAW images but cannot confirm that the areas are clearer & richer… For a moment I even thought of a malfunction with my camera but I shot almost 400 images that week and none of them showed these white lines or boxes. Anyways, here is a cleaned version of the image (I left the post-it stickers in) The reason I took this photo was the strange combination of the altar, the modern painting, the piano and the reflections of the tiles on the piano’s front.
Thanks for the explanation, maybe the post stickers are markings for areas of repair?
