Bratislava, Slovakia, taken on January 15, 2014
The Church of St. Elizabeth is known as the Blue Church for more-than-obvious reasons. The true colour of the exterior is closer to a pastel or baby blue, but somehow this photo made the shade of blue look a lot more intense. Maybe the complement of the blue sky gave it some sort of effect, adding a new layer of blue to this already blue city.
After a few days of rain and gray weather, the blue sky is finally back today and it is oh-so-beautiful! I feel the energy rushing into my body and soul again 😀
[Travel time] Bratislava is a city associated with its many statues scattered all around, but for me, it encompasses another simple word – blue. There were many blue things that I photographed during my half-day in Bratislava, including the Blue Church, the “Blue” Danube (river), and this blue tram on the street. Perhaps the bluest of them all is the city itself, which gave me a melancholic feeling of…blue. I don’t know if it’s the city in general, or just the atmosphere of the particular day that I was there. Why are you so sad, Bratislava?
“The moment one gives close attention to anything, even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself.” –Henry Miller (Same goes to this lonely little flower, waving in the cold wind, enduring the first snow of this late winter season…)
The moon was visible at noon today, faded against a crystal clear sky above the reddening leaves. Finally some blueness again after days of rain…so refreshing!
