We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us. – E. M. Forster
We are all trapped in our Covid19 bubbles – and at least here in Europe we are facing tough restrictions again. This gives us a chance to rediscover our surroundings – indoors and outdoors. And, it also means a chance to develop our photography and think outside the ordinary box. We have had some months to practice already…
Neighborhood – this might just mean taking a photo from the kitchen or office window, but, macro possibilities are obvious as well – a tiny neighbourhood with many new surprises.
Here are some suggestions to get you on track for Found in the Neighborhood: What makes this place (thing, person, pet…) what it is? How can I look at the everyday from a new perspective? Try organizing a creative stilleben you have never seen before! Details might reveal new worlds, or maybe you just noticed a new or redecorated house nearby?
Last week I decided to go a few minutes northwest and visit Gumlösa church, a church I haven’t visited since I was 10 years old. It is too close to home I guess… but so worthy of rediscovery!
According to old documents, the church was consecrated 26th of October 1192 by Archbishop Absalon in Lund. At the consecration was also Eirik Ivarsson, Archbishop of Norway, and bishop Stenar of Växjö. Many relics were preserved here, among others: a hair from the Virgin Mary and a piece of the Holy Cross.
The church was also constructed for defense. In the late Middle Ages they built the upper part of the tower and the stepped gables.
Gumlösa church is the oldest dated brick building in Scandinavia. It went down in a fire in 1904, where only the massive walls and vaults survived, together with the little Crucifix in the third image. But the church was soon restored to its former glory.
While walking along the aisle, notice the white sheets of paper on the chairs – the text says: ”This chair is for the Holy Spirit”. A subtle way of helping us to take better care of each other.
There is so much to discover, if only you open your mind and all your senses. Follow that road, follow your curiosity – even if you cannot go far away from home right now. There might still be lovely surprises around the corner… I hope you will go find them.
Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less. – Marie Curie

Love all those tree photos A-C, the colours are fabulous and the composition is excellent. My favourite has to be the one with the Belted Galloway cattle, we have them here in Cornwall too, but I first saw them in Scotland. Apparently they have very thick coats and are hardy so can stay outside in very cold weather. Here they need waterproof coats! I think one of their nicknames is ‘Panda Cow’
My post will be up tomorrow. I had to go looking for something a little different as I have posted so many photos this year of my close neighbourhood. I did come across an interesting fact on my search which I think you will like.
Jude, thank you – so glad you like the trees! Somehow I believe you portray best what you love – and I love trees and flowers. So maybe there is much love behind it too. But the camera is not my usual Nikon, it is a Fuji XT20.
Now I am extremely curious about what you have found in your neighbourhood!
I used to have a Fuji bridge camera before I upgraded to my Olympus, mainly because I wanted a macro lens. They are excellent cameras.
Thank you, yes. And this one is as good as an XT2 but less expensive… Olympus is excellent.
Love the Cattle click.
All the photo are beautiful.
Love the way you explained
Thank You for reading and commenting!

Excellent challenge. I learned a new word, ”stilleben,” and I love that idea to create something that would not have been there without our arranging it. I have only done a little of that in my photographic adventure. We have changed neighborhoods, as I’ve talked about ad nauseum, and today I did a short walk in my new neighborhood which I will try to post tomorrow – late, I know! As usual, the Lens Artists inspire us to greater photographic feats. 🙂 Thanks Leya, for sharing your belted galloway. They are adorable. Your neighborhood church, amazing. In my neighborhoods, of course, we have no man-made buildings left standing from the 1100s and it astounds me to see any building that old. Thanks for sharing this beautiful challenge. 🙂
Marsha – I hear you enjoyed the choice for the challenge! Looking forward to seeing your post – from a new neighbor hood as well. And you are not late…this challenge is forever ;-D
A forever contest. That’s a great idea. it helps to recycle our posts, too if new people catch the vision and want to share their photos to a specific theme. Brilliant, Leya. That’s a question I never thought to ask on the interview. 🙂

You are so lucky to live in such a picturesque neighborhood, Ann-Christine! The church is quite different from the ones we usually see, being built with bricks. It gives it quite a homely feel. And as always, everything beautifully captured.
Thank you, glad you came along, Sue! I agree the red bricks make the church look warm and homely. But it is very high. I had a day of childhood memories.

It’s so interesting how we sometimes don’t visit the places nearest to us! I’m so glad you took us to the church. It’s gorgeous. The architecture is so solid and built to endure for centuries. Of course your cattle were a big favorite of mine. Interesting coloration. I have never seen this breed around here. You are getting wonderful responses to this challenge, AC. This is a wonderful opportunity to share a bit of our world. I’ll be thinking of you as I take my morning walk! I hope you get some time in the sun today.
So glad you enjoyed my outing! – and I hope the challenge is an opportunity to show new findings too! Sorry to say, but no sun here these days – only mist and drizzle, and grey. Hope your morning walk is better!

How wonderful! An 800 year old building which is still in use for its original purpose. That’s as old as some towns. Beautiful photos. And autumn is so mellow in Sweden.
So glad you enjoyed the old church, and yes, it is really old and still in use. Autumn is a lovely moth here with crisp air in October. November is mostly misty and rainy, which makes the colours go away.

Sometimes we overlook the things right in our backyards. Thanks for sharing the story of Gumlösa church through words and photos, Ann-Christine. I liked the stepped gables in your second shot. That’s wonderful that you met another giant tree!

Glad you enjoyed the visit too! And my new friend i will visit again soon.
Wonderful topic. Love those autumn trees!
I am glad! I love autumn, but this year it did not last for long, the colourful part of it. Glad to have caught some of it.
Our color was short lived this year, also.
Sad, isn’t it. But maybe that is part of the glory – short life but so enlivening.
What a beautiful old church. And the beech trees are stunning.
Glad you liked it – a special feeling when walking up to it after 50 years! And that forest area I had never walked before.

Given the current state of the world and the resurgence of Covid-19, it is in everyone’s best interest to stay close to home when possible. Though we have been doing some traveling, we have avoided crowded locations, visited sites in the great outdoors, and generally followed the recommended safety protocols. Looks like it will be a long, lonely holiday season. Take care and stay safe, my friend.
True, John. We have roamed the outdoors trying to avoid company – and it went well so far. I was happy to visit places not seen for many years, and paths I had never walked before. But Christmas will not be like Christmas, that is a fact. You also take care and stay safe, John. I will continue walking despite the darkness.
hi a.c., you have chosen wonderful pictures for the challenge, I especially liked the forest pictures. here are my neighborhood pictures, https://wp.me/p2AvI7-3E0.

I had so many things to choose from for this topic. So I decided on what I thought was the most surprising find for me at the time I took these photos: https://thisandthatthenextpart.wordpress.com/2020/11/15/lens-artists-photo-challenge-123-found-in-the-neighborhood/
Yes – good idea! I will find out what you were surprised by!
The church and the autumn colours are all amazing Ann-Christine. This is beautiful…really beautiful!
Here is my simple entry for this week. https://mywanderings.travel.blog/2020/11/15/this-is-my-neighbourhood/
So glad you came along, Teresa! While the leaves were still there – and on untrodden paths!
So are the leaves all gone now?
Oh well, til next year then! But you will have the wonderful view of the snow.
Well – if there is any this year. last year we got nothing. Climate change is obvious everywhere here up north.

So tall, that church, Ann Christine! And your woods so very beautiful. Wishing you a lovely week! 🙂 🙂
Thank you, Jo – yes, it was just as tall as I remembered it. But the old tree was gigantic – I bet just as tall as the church…or taller.
These are lovely images of course – and how interesting that you have Belted Galloways. Now, how to showcase my own area? Here’s a challenge indeed!
I am sure you will show us just how lovely it is! I remember you walking the gravel road looking at flowers…somewhere in the beginning of Covid. Looking forward to seeing your take on!
Gorgeous, peaceful images. You’re lucky to have such surroundings.
Here is mine:
Thank you, Sofia, happy you liked it! I was rather overwhelmed by these surroundings close to the church. I had never walked there before.

How wonderful to have such an amazing old church in your neighbourhood.
It is, Su, thank you. In its walls there is the headstone from king Gustaf Vasa’s sister! He was a famous king here in the 15th century. He is the father of Vasaloppet, the biggest skiing contest in the world.
I’ve just Googled Vasaloppet — looks amazing! 🙂
😀 It is always a big feast – or was…
I was delighted to accompany you on this beautiful walk. I would also have stayed with your new friend for a while. What a wonderful tree! 🙂
Glad you came along, Ana! And, I will return to my new friend again soon. Impressive!

I like the church and how rigid and aged it looks, as well as the other photos showing the varying colours in vegetation, but my favourite is the old, mostly bare tree. There’s something about it that seems to pull me in.

Ann-Christine, I fear I am with you. The church is very special but the nature you’ve shared on your walk is extraordinary. For me, that would be the church! I love that you found a new ”friend” and of course I love the belted galloways (of which we do know the nickname😊of course), but most of all I love the glorious autumn leaves that escorted you home. Wonderful post and challenge.
Thank you, Tina. It is great to see a childhood building you remember so well – but on the other hand not…As a child you often see things as very high or big, and that was the case with this one. Surprisingly I still found it very high and big!
So glad to have walked new paths with you, Tina! And, Nature and the forest is my church, has always been. I find peace and harmony there, like nowhere else. But we both belong to nature, don’t we.
That church is beautiful as is the leafy walk. I love belted cattle, so it was fun to see this. Such wonderful leaf colors.
Janet – it was lovely to see that old church again. When I was a child it seemed enormously high…and in fact, it still seems it is!

Glad you enjoyed them – so sorry they are gone now…
Thank you so much for the tour of the Gumlösa church, AC! The brick building is magnificent.
Enjoy the last colours of autumn, all are beautifully captured, the last image is my favorite. Marie Curie’s quote is inspiring!
Thank you, Amy, always appreciate your thoughts! The last one is my favorite as well. I find Curie’s quote very inspiring too, and true. The more we know the facts about things, the more we can act in the right direction without so much fear.
Well said, AC.
Wonderful church! Love this, and I’ve shared on Twitter. Thank you Ann Christine.
Thank you so much, Liz! It was great coming back here again after all those years. And my church is mostly the forest – but so like the inside of this church as well.
Fabulous neighbourhood Ann-Christine 🙂 I live Belties. My neighbourhood isn’t as colourful as yours
I like these cows, they look so friendly and calm. And my neighborhood (a week later) is grey by now. These were the last colours of the year. But we have great forests everywhere. Your neighborhood has many colourful birds instead, Brian. And many of them stay the whole year?
Yes the birds come and go but some do stay around all year
So you have colours throughout! And we have no colours for about four months. In March there might be some flowers like wood anemones and the blue hepatica. Much longed for! This is why my house contains about 150 indoor plants that I take care of every day. Who can live without living colours? I can’t. ♥
It is hard to live without colour. Yes it’s either is hot or cold, wet or dry and jumble those up to get my weather. So Summer droughts or floods, hot days cool nights. Winter is mostly dry and cold at night with around the 20C’s during the day and getting into the minuses some nights -1 to coldest has been -10. Always green
♥ Always green♥
Your neighborhood looks stunning! I’m sure you’ve enjoyed ”rediscovering” it. And what IS the nickname for the Galloway cows from Scotland? Thanks for the shout-out, by the way!!
Well…thank you, and you are wellcome. Nickname…John just figured it out!

Ah, great challenge! I must get some images together….
Well – I thought you would have some for us!
Yes, I’m just lazy
‘Belties.’ (Thank you Google.) Beautiful photos. Love that old brick church. Lotta’ bricks! BEAUTIFUL autumn pathways and woods. Excellent.
P.S. I discovered stilleben is German for ‘still life’. Hmm.
Oh – I seem to have my head somewhere else today…in Sweden we say stilleben, just like in Germany – You really are my indispensable guide…still life in English of course! Thank you again ♥
So happy to hear you like it, John! Thanks again for the heads up – I hadn’t checked if it worked! And there are two nick names…
Oreo Cows. 🙂
Ha – yes – and we don’t have those cookies in Sweden!
Oreo must love the free publicity for anything that is black and white and black. It’s a favorite dog name in the U.S.
A dog name? OK, so Oreo is a cookie name and became so appreciated that people named their dogs after it? Or is it the other way around?
Named after the cookie because they are black and white, and/or a mixed breed.
Yes. I finally looked them up – and totally understand their name…I do think I have seen cookies here like them, but don’t eat such things myself.
I have been doing walks in my area for the last few years and I have definitely discovered stuff that I didn’t know about beforehand. This is definitely a good topic!
Looking forward to seeing your take on!
