Memory of a church

I felt like sharing a picture showing the old church in the small town where I was born. This picture is from 2007. The church is now gone, it was completely destroyed by a fire in january 2010.

I live in a part of the world called Norway with my wife and two daughters. I worked as a telecom engineer for 20 years. Nowadays I am attending a helpdesk supporting colleagues with computer problems. I am also a hobby photographer who believe we ought to pay more attention to how we treat our planet and each other. I trust the reports from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, and I am disappointed that leading politicians in my own and other countries more or less have been ignoring warnings from the scientists for 20 years.

    1. Thank you, Angie. I did not go there very often, but when it was gone, I realized that I was more fond of it than I had been aware of. I am lucky to have quite a few pictures of it from 2005, when I helped the parish setting up a new website.
      A new church is being built now, on the same spot. It is in concrete, very modern and completely different from the old one – which was from 1862, by the way.

      1. Wow, 1862! I’m glad a new church is being built. And even though it is going to be modern now, in a couple hundred years or so it won’t be so modern to future people. Perhaps they’ll be in awe of it like we are nowadays with older buildings.
