Lens-Artists Photo Challenge – Opposites


Thanks to Tina for this week’s challenge. Tina’s great post (and pics) are available HERE.

In September 2017, MB attended the wedding of a Lebanese friend in one of the oldest towns in the region, Byblos, on Lebanon’s Mediterranean coast. The wedding venue was the Saint Jean-Marc Cathedral, built by the Crusaders in 1,115 AD, a few hundred meters from the Crusader Castle of the same era. i

The church was originally built in honour of St John the Baptist, but a name change followed in later years to honour the Saint who introduced Christianity to the Byblos/Jbail region.MB made a post of that wedding trip which can be viewed HERE if followers wish to see more of the church and ceremony.

MB has chosen a shot from that wedding to try to meet Tina’s ‘Opposites’ theme. The shot shows the bride disappearing into the church where the groom awaits.

And so begins their married lives, leaving their opposite, so to speak, ‘single’ lives behind.

  1. Very clever Micheal! I love that you made this image which many would have ignored. You’re so right about its significance – it really tells a wonderful story. Thanks so much for joining us this week!
