Three photos (a main one and two in Workshops) of interior of Georgian churches. The Georgians are very religious. The taxi and marshrutka's drivers seeing the cross or church on the road, made the sign of the cross three times, in Orthodox manner, and often kissed a holly picture. In the church there are no sits, all the people are standing that can be tiring for elderly. Women must have a scarf on the head. I love the magical atmosphere of the Orthodox churches, with the view and smell of the slim candles and solemn feeling. In monasteries usually the photos were not allowed, it the churches it was possible to make them but not easy as the interiors were often dark.
Pity that in the last moment someone came before my camera, but the church was full of people.
I wish you all Happy Easter!!

Zdravo Malgo. Now I know what the interior of a Georgian church looks like.Nice that the women wear scarves, something that I remember from my childhood. Now in many countries women dress as if going to a club- to see and be seen. Yes, pity about the heads, but it is a crowded place. Sretan Uskrs. Klaudio.

Et mes meilleurs souhaits de circonstances à toi aussi. Tu as réussi à trouver quelque chose qui marche très bien avec le sujet de Pâques.Quelle belle foule dans l'église superbement décorée.

Beautifully decorated orthodox church here. With so many people around it is almost impossible to avoid having someone marching in to your shot. But isn't the orthodox easter one or two weeks later than ours only?
Anyway I wish you a happy easter too.

Nice capture from the Orthodox cathedral, very similar to ours (we share the same side of religion).
I wish you a joyful Easter!

Dekoracje w kościołach prawosławnych są rzeczywiście oszałamiające, wnętrze niepowtarzalne, piękna kolorystyka.

A beautiful set of images, full of the colors of these special places. Normally when I visit churches there is nobody around, so it is nice to see so many people there in this scene. The light flooding in from the centre window looks heavenly.
I wish you and yours a very happy Easter

Ciao Margherita (nome molto primaverile)
belli questi interni, tutte le pareti sono dipinte, come nella tradizione ortodossa, con colori molto vivaci.
Nonostante qui sia più freddo di qualche giorno fa e che piove...buona Pasqua a tutti voi.

I hate to do this, but with very limited free time at the moment, please pardon my ‘copy & paste’ note. I really wanted to respond to as many as possible before this next week really gets away from me. With no time for details unfortunately, I can still say this image is one that I find quite enjoyable. :) All the best to you and yours for a Happy Easter. Take care.

An excellent indoor photo with great light management. DOF is very fine, too. The colorful decorations of the walls are spectacular.
