The beautiful Christian’s Church of Klaksvik in the Faroe Islands. I’ve never been inside a modern church before (they’re all ancient in the UK) but this one is truly beautiful! I hope all modern churches look like this in the USA, but I guess not?

Designed in the 40s or 50s by the Peter Koch (an important Dane) to house the vast fresco painted by Joakim Skovgaard in 1901. I have no idea why they moved the painting all the way to the Faroes… But who am I to complain?

My first attempt at architectural photography; turned out OK, eh?

(There will be a related blog entry, but coming tomorrow, if I find the time)
