This beautiful church called the Walburgischurch is the perfect setting for having the World Press Photo 2016. Today i visit the exhibition and there were quite some astounding pictures. Also lots of shocking pictures, and some very fine quality natural beauty. Highlight for me was the Kids Rights exhibition where ‘the Youngsters’ were presented to the audience. One of them is Malala. The Kids Rights have their own version of the Nobel Peace Price called the International Children’s Peace Prize and its heartwarming to read about kids in difficult situation finding inspiration and starting to do something which causes a change.

As i was looking at the photos i also noticed the beauty of the place. In the gallery you can find a few images of the inside and outside of the location. The inside is the middle part of the church, the ship it’s called i believe. The outside was something i came up with while editing the HDR and i think it turned out quite alright 🙂

Wish you a lovely week

As we walk through our existence
Life changes come and go
Sometimes we struggle
Sometimes we fight
As the pain from deep inside haunts us

As with all things impermanent
Life too can change for the good
Pain can turn into pleasure
Sharing friendship and laughter
As the love from deep within shines on

As we try to express the inexpressible
Words fail us whenever we might try
To speak out what matters most to us
Leaving us speechless with too much to say
As the moment of insight glides from our reach

And yet it is our power to be
Expressing our human nature
Vulnerable and whole
Leave out all distinctions
And express who you want to be
