St Stephen's Church in Nessebar
Today is the Feast of the Assumption - when Jesus' mother Mary went up to heaven. This seems to be a very big event in the Orthodox Church and most churches have some representation of this event. I had hoped to upload a series of photos I have taken of these paintings but none of them seemed to have turned out too well (bad lighting, awkward angles and not being allowed to take photos anyway inside some of these churches). So here are some images from the beautifully decorated Church of St Stephen in Nessebar (where I paid my dues to be allowed to take the pics).
