Secrets held within
Gathering dust and shadows
Exorcised when light streams in
Unveiled and unlocked by love
The photo for this week’s prompt was taken as we attempted to get inside the Church of St Lawrence in Broughton, Milton Keynes. The heart-shaped key-plate and its ornate key gave little indication of what we would find behind the locked door.
Set within the bounds of a modern, ‘designer’ city, it is a completely unexpected gem of a mediaeval church, whose walls are covered with fifteenth-century paintings. There are scenes as varied as the Virgin tipping the Scales to prevent the condemned souls from being claimed by the Devil, a graphic depiction of the evils of blaspheming and a superb (if headless) St George and the Dragon.
Thank you to everyone who took part, visited or reblogged the posts or left comments for their authors.
A new prompt will be published later today. As always, I will reblog as many contributions as space and time allows as they come in… and all of them will be featured in the round-up next Thursday.
All the posts are listed below, so please click on the links below to read them and leave a comment for the author!
Pingbacks do not always come through… if you have written a post for this challenge and it does not appear in the round-up, please leave a link to your post in the comments and I will add it to the list.
An invitation to writephoto writers…
As there are usually too many contributions to reblog all of them every week, and so that we can get to know their writers, I would like to invite all writephoto writers to come and introduce themselves on the blog as my guest! Click here for details.
Come and join in!
Thank you to all Contributors!
