Hmmm, interesting. The photo treatment gives it a kind of ghostly quality.
yes I think it too!
Now that's weird! Perhaps is their way to prepare for Easter. I live in a very Christian country but this is the first time I see something like this! nice shot!
A nice touch whomever lives there.
I guess it's their own little way of reminding people why we celebrate Easter. Can't have one without the other, after all.
I've never seen a private house with such an 'installation'...
They might be catholic. At my church they changed the piece of cloth according to the celebrations (white, green....) but I have never seen a purple one.....
Timely post and I like the soft focus. In the Catholic tradition the colors represent the various liturgical seasons - purple is for the present season of Lent. Today, Good Friday, that cross might be draped in black (symbol of death) for the day Christ died. Easter Sunday is the high holy day and the celebratory white color would be displayed. These colors are commonly displayed in both Catholic and Protestant churches in the Boston area. I have only seen a few residential displays.
Nice post for today!
The cross at my church is draped in purple today too. This is a nice Good Friday post.
Very soft tones for a beautiful image, many interesting comments to an unusual post.
very evocativelovely capture
Did he leave His coat while taking a break? If I were HE, I wouldn’t come back
I have never seensuch a thing......but the picture is very beautiful!!!:-)
Nice shot Jacob. Two observations : 1) you're probably right about the neighbours 2) Surprises that in many countries the neighbours don't interact with each other or don't know each other. Its rather surprising for someone like me who comes from a country where most of them know about their neighbourhood well .... (inquisitive guys nah .. the indians!)Ram (chennaidailyfoto.wordpress.com)
@ Ram N. - I'd say that in our neighborhood, we know the immediate neighbors fairly well, although do not socialize much. When you get three or four houses away, we know people to greet them and chitchat but not much more than that. At one half a mile we hardly know anybody.
I've never seen that in a private house!You are probably right about the owners.
