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

Knight of Edinburgh

As there is a castle in Edinburgh, you also need knights to defend it. So they placed two statues at the gate. This is one of them, i’ve converted the image to black and white for a little more drama 🙂
