photoblog image ....and unto dust shalt thou return.......

....and unto dust shalt thou return.......

 

I often wonder when I am in a church if they take the next quote literally:   'In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return'..........

Genesis 3:19 (King James Version)

 

and yes I know this is a spiderweb, but the dust is clearly visible too.

Le ménage n'est pas souvent fait.
Picturit: It is almost nowhere to start if you don't keep up with the job.

Dust is great in churches, Bill...holy, too!
Picturit: You called me 'Bill'.... I see that as a compliment...
Dust gives character, but not at home though.. wink
Astrid.
Your name placement? Perfecto!
Picturit: Thank you kindly. smile
Astrid.
I love your image - the spider web, the dust and the fact that the cross is slightly off kilter... It makes for a more interesting shot. And I suppose if you want to get really deep about it, it could maybe represent Christ's imperfection as a human.
Picturit: This was on top of a confession booth, I could have probably reach it from the ground (I am not that tall). I was thinking about a title and than the famous 'riddle' dust to dust, ashes to ashes, came in mind...and after that my mind goes wondering off and I came up with this text. I had to google it though. It is like at work I want to have a 'tree planting day' and I would love to work in that forest to be. Lately the new company uses an outrageous amount of paper with all the the rolls we produce. The paper waste is in this time not done (in MY eyes),think about the environment. Of course there will never be a 'brocacef forest' but we love the conversation about it.

Ooooops...not sure how I arrived at "Bill", Astrid, but certainly no offence intended to either lovely party.
I love how you find these photo ops, Astrid, especially in churches (like the one in Venlo awhile back). And yes, your name placement is fabulous, yet again!

Mortality and dust, a warning to us all..
Picturit: Indeed so, Chris and I think we all have the same fate, nobody is invincible...

Did you know that church cleaners here are called "holy dusters"?
Picturit: That is too funny... I think the 'holy dusters' were on vacation for a long while.
Astrid.
It makes us seem like plant but that ain't so bad

Love the picture Lady P
Picturit: Thank you, Bill. It cought my eye and was not amazed, the church was wonderful but it could use a good cleaning.

a very fine observation with the Bible quote!
Picturit: My mind jumped from 'one to the other' while I was looking for a title.
Astrid.
I love this detail photograph Astrid, especially the cob webs, even thought that might sound daft.
Picturit: I know what you mean, things like this I notice all the time.
Everything in this church could use some 'holy dusters' like Lisl mentioned... what a name smile

Dust means that the dead ones are all over the place. Very interesting - when my father-in-law got buried in Dutchland, he was buried in the same grave as his mother, who died some 45 years before him. When the grave was opened, there was absolutely nothing left of her and the coffin - meaning that she actually became one with the soil/dust.
Picturit: That is amazing. When you think deeper about this it is like the 'full circle'....I want to be cremated, I don't want to take space where somebody can live and I don't want any geraniums planted on my stomach, but that is just me.
Astrid.
Oh what I wouldn't do for a damp cloth.
Picturit: HA I know the feeling. After cleaning I would LOVE to do some brown wax too, that will make it smell good smile
Astrid.
Another great shot you saw and I know i would have missed.
Picturit: It is weird that I always spot these things.....
Astrid.
I've never been able to take any religious pronouncements seriously and this one is a corker!
Picturit: Thank you kindly, Tom.
Astrid.
A lovely combination of geometries...
Picturit: Thank you, Larry. This was situated on top of a confession booth.... I think a cleaner would come in handy...
Astrid.
i like this cropped scene, Astrid. the wooden tones and the dust that you speak of, reminds me of my grandparents' place that i visited as a boy.
Picturit: Isn't that strange that some scenes take you back to childhood. I hope happy memories?
Astrid.
