I show you yesterday the Bell Tower of St.Elias Church.
I love this architecture. I put my imagination in power and I travel back with the old time. Could you hear the sound of music???
I find some more information about this "Boyko"style.
For those who are not familiar with wooden architecture of Central Europe the Boyko style churches are characterized by a three-room structure. Each of the three rooms are square, are arranged in line, and each is topped by a dome. A further characteristics of this style is that the centre room, called the NAVE, is the largest and is topped by the largest and tallest dome. The SANCTUARY, which is located at the front of the church and the NARTHEX, which is located at the rear of the church, are typically of the same size and topped with similar domes. Most Boyko style churches feature a wide overhang, or porch, encircling the nave and the narthex at ground level. Also, many Boyko churches exhibit a porch, or a balcony, at the upper level that encircles only the narthex. St.George and St. Elias exhibit both of these features.
There is more picture to come m:-)

The only thing I know or hear about Brampton Ontario was when I had to send post-paid Kodakrome slide film to the laboratory there for processing. Those days I really like slide film! but everytime I had to wait for weeks to get back the slides from Brampton.
And this is very artistic composition of the architecture partly done with the blue sky, especially the dome shape and cross in full view on the blue backdrop. Very clean clarity and no optical distortion from this POV.
A fine shot.
Greetings [now] from Borneo.

Nikt nie uwierzy patrząc na to zdjęcie, że to Kanada!
Czuje się oddech stepów, dumek i chutorów.
Dzikie Pola po prostu! :)
