Photographer's Note

I have realized that I haven't uploaded a BW shot for months, so today's papagolfade is in B&W, this is the neoclassical Elleboogkerk (Elbow church) which is also known as Onze Lieve Vrouwe Hemelvaartkerk (the church of Our Lady's Ascension) of 19C (1820) which is (or, more precisely, was: see below) located in the Dutch town of Amersfoort, on the Langegracht canal. The church was functional until 1963, after which it housed several museums, in particular, since 1998, the collection of Dutch painter and sculptor Armando.

Now comes the sad part, roughly a month after I took the shot, on 22 October 2007, the church, and the art collection inside, have been destroyed by a fire of an unknown origin, the tower collapsing shortly afterwards... I haven't been to Amersfoort after that so I can only imagine how it all looks like today.

ISO 400, the shot was made in the evening...
