Two days ago I spent an afternoon capturing some of the features of the Major Church of my hometown, a gothic building constructed on the remains of a Romanesque structure. The sun was shining bright, so there was quite some light.
The church has a series of chapels, mainly used for burying rich citizens who could afford such a prominent place. On this photo you see one of those chapels.
This particular shade of red (claret) is one of the basic colours you find throughout the historic city centre, especially on shutters and gable stones. The decorations of the door are rather elegant in contrast with its surroundings, while the red against the black makes a strong impression. The skulls leave no doubt as to the purpose of the chapel.
