Our local church

Shapes and shadows, originally uploaded by CharlesFred.

Having a guest to stay is often a good excuse to visit places in the city one usually does not visit. So, apart from the (very busy) Amsterdam Sex Museum, we also visited our (slightly less busy) local church.

It is a Catholic Church, built also in the Amsterdam School style, which used to be called the Martyrs of Gorinchem, to commemorate the Catholics who were raped and murdered by the Protestants a few hundred years ago, but has now taken on a politically-correct and insipid name which I cannot even remember. Anyway, it was Sunday morning and the doors were open and the church looked magnificent in the bright winter sunshine.

It was shortly after visiting the church that we saw the sign of the cross reflecting off the ice as seen below!
