Great holmertz 2020-07-30 2:24

Hello Jorge,
I wonder how they actually managed to use a former church as a school for motorcycle sports. It doesn't sound like the best possible location.
But the photo is nicely composed. The monument of dark tones balances and contrasts the bright church and the group of tourists fill the foreground well. It's a colourful and well exposed photo.
Best regards,
Gert

Default To holmertz: church

gert

they demolished the tower and domes, this was usual in soviet times, and reused the building. I guess it was like a club where the members had meetings and classes, but the activities were done somewhere outside.. curious as the atheist rulers or those from another faith, ever wanted to humiliate the temples. soviets, napoleon, hitler, medieval kings, etc did that.

take care

jorge
