In keeping with the season of Easter (and just being lazy) I used a photo from Palm Sunday for this week’s Deck photo, I “reserved” two from that day just in case I didn’t get anything else I liked for the week, as it is I haven’t even downloaded what little else I did take, so it’s a good thing I did keep back two.
This one is more in keeping with the period, and is somewhat symbolic. The photograph was taken early in the proceedings, the lay-ministers had just brought up all the ciboria before the altar, and I took a few snaps of them, this one happened to use as the central ciborium the one from the Sacred Heart parish. The Church of the Sacred Heart was destroyed by fire on Christmas day in 2004, the building was then 135 years old. The parishioners long to see the church rebuilt and like Christ, rise to new glory.
Happy Easter folks.

These holiday weeks are always like that. You end up being very busy and then it is too late. This is why you always have to carefully plan ahead. As far as these things go I think you did pretty well.
Thanks, this is one of the few times I’ve actually “held back” images specifically for the Deck 🙂
I love the PP, really great job. I hope they get to rebuild.
Thanks David, originally I intended to keep the original colour, but then the image just begged to be processed in sepia 🙂
Very Lovely. I wonder how old it is. Love the design on it. Was it all gold?
This one might have been more “white gold”, it was more silvery than the rest 🙂
Wonderfully captured. reflections are hard, you’ve done a nice job. What were your photo specs? Great composition. Happy Easter to you! So sad to here about the church being destroyed on Christmas, no less. Perhaps there is hope to restore and rebuild.
Thanks Martina, I think I even see a reflection of myself in one 🙂 They are raising funds to rebuild, so maybe sometime in the future…
I like the chocolaty b&w pp on this shot. Quite simplistic shot but very symbolic of the festivities.
Thanks Sasi, I think I could learn a lot about monochromes from you, you do great monochromatic post-processing.
Real nice… It’s always good to have shots in reserve… Like the lighting here.. I hope you had a great weekend..
Thanks Brian, I don’t normally reserve shots, but this time it worked out well. I used a vignette to accentuate the central ciborium.
