Photographer's Note

The Sunday papagolfade of this week was taken in Brugge, here we see main tower and the side transept window of Our Lady's church (Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekerk). This Gothic church dates mainly from 13C and is famous for Michelangelo's Madonna and Child of 1504, the only his sculpture that has left Italy during his lifetime (probably meant originally for the Siena Cathedral, it was purchased in Italy by two Brugean merchants, the brothers Jan and Alexander Mouscron, and in 1514 donated to its present home), and for its slender brick tower 122 m tall, the second tallest brick structure in the world.

Handheld at 1/8, iso 400.
