#43 my historical town

043/365 my historical town, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

This is a cherished view of my town, with the meandering river Aura – now frozen and still – and the almost 800-year-old Cathedral in the background. Apart from seasonal change, this scene has remained more or less unaltered for as long as I remember. The tower of the Cathedral is like a beacon guiding us, busy people of today.

As so often before, I stopped at this spot on the bridge to admire this ageless beauty. Today, the long shadows were like whispers from the past centuries.

    When I am in places like this that have existed so long I try to imagine the scene as it may have been hundreds of years ago – people looking at the same cathedral, walking by the same river. Yes – whispers from the past – so beautifully said.
