Photographer's Note

Re is a village in the Province of Verbano-Cusio-Ossola, in the region of Piedmont, Italy, approximately 20 km from Domodossola and 7 km from the border with Switzerland. It is situated on the Centovalli mountain railway route between Domodossola and Locarno and is home to a pilgrimage church. The famous miracle of the Lady of the Blood that occurred on April 29, 1494 was a turning point in the history of Re. The grandiose Byzantine style basilica of the renaissance era, an excellent work of art by the architect Edoardo Coliamarini of Bologna was constructed almost entirely by the stonemasons and artisans from Valle Vigezzo.

I'm not much into such typical shots of architecture, but as I'd just bought a wide angle, I gave it a try. In the WS you can see another shot and the facade of the basilica.

Re, Isvicre sinirina yakin cok seker, tablo gibi bir Italyan koyu. 1494'te burada bir mucize gerceklesmis, hani su heykelin gozlerinden kanli yaslar akar ya, filmlerde goruruz, oyle birsey iste. Koy bu olaydan sonra onem kazanmis, insanlar buraya bir cesit hacca geliyorlar. Burasi Bizans stili bir basilica, Bologna'li mimar Edoardo Coliamarini tasarlamis, Vigezzo vadisindeki tas ustalarinin yardimiyla yapilmis.
Bu tarz mimari fotograflar aslinda fotograf olarak cok ilgimi cekmiyor. Genis acimi denemek icin bir kac tane cektim bu tatilde. WS'de baska bir cekimi ve kilisenin disini gorebilirsiniz.
