Weekly Photo Challenge – Juxtaposed

I have been scratching my head a bit on this week’s photographic challenge, but have found a couple of photos that might just fit. The image is of an old stone church featuring a slit window and some ivy growing up the outside. Looking in the window all we see is the outside still, the Church now a complete ruin and overgrown inside and out.

And in b/w:

Looking in, Looking Out
Looking in, Looking Out

Around the ruins lies the old graveyard with headstones of varying age and design, the headstones marking the rest of those gone before. Not only the dead, but it seems that the trees have come to rest here too, even the living.

For those interested, this church ruin and graveyard can be found just by Monkstown, County Cork.

I will let you be the judge. Can I also thank toy for your ongoing visits to my blog and taking the time to comment and like, it is hereat to have you on over. Beijinhos (I just love that word, it even sounds great) MM πŸ’š
