Spaceship Onze Lieve Vrouwekerk

Onze Lieve Vrouwekerk, Bruges, BelgiumChurch of Our Lady (Onze Lieve Vrouwekerk), Bruges, Belgium.

This photo appeals to me for several reason. I like the perspective, the colors, and the lighting on the bridge’s stones and through the stained glass window. I also like how the tower looks like a rocket ship next to the church, which resembles a moon lander.

I believe church architecture is intended to send thoughts towards heaven and its most important occupant. When I look at the Church of Our Lady at night, my thoughts are turned upward, but towards the heavens, not heaven. Even so, thinking of the vastness of space and all its occupants leaves me full of awe.
