La Crypte

6th July.

Can’t believe I’m 40 today! Only seems like yesterday I was celebrating my 30th.

Todays post was another from our last-minute road trip and was a rather beautiful underground crypt in the middle of a city in Belgium. During the day there is security on the gate of this very beautifully kept and wonderful looking cemetery and no photos allowed. To add to this, there is a team of restorers working on much of the masonry underground. The place is dark, eerie and damp and a place I wanted to photograph for so long.

This was therefore, a late afternoons access when the place was closed. I must stress that we are respectful of other people’s property but we had to climb the rear fence in the park in order to gain access as security still operates after hours.

After negotiating our way through the many crypts and intricate gravestones, we found the access point and made our way in.

We spent an hour or so capturing this place and gave me a good chance to test out my new 50mm F1.4 lens.

There are more photos on my Flickr photostream but a small selection are for your viewing below.

Thanks for looking in.
