To everything – turn, turn, turn
There is a season – turn, turn, turn
And a time to every purpose under heaven
Lots of ways to interpret this week’s photo challenge, but my immediate thoughts were of the Byrd’s song which was a hit in the 1965. Written by Pete Seeger in the late 1950s the words are taken from the bible (Ecclesiastes). The lines are open to myriad interpretations, but as a song they are commonly performed as a plea for world peace, with an emphasis on the closing line:
“a time for peace, I swear it’s not too late.”
In view of what is happening in the world today, I thought that this was an appropriate response, though I hasten to add that I am not in any way religious, despite being drawn to religious buildings and ancient churchyards like this pretty little chapel on the outskirts of Cascais, Portugal.

Cascais looks like a peaceful place. Portugal has been on my bucket list for a long time. Best wishes for your move. You will be pleased when it is over and done with.
Clever interpretation Jude and the image of the cross, the meaning behind the song and the final photo of the chapel tell a story
Glad you like it PP. First thing that came in to my head, and then I remembered these images which I love, so figured they went with the message.
What a gorgeous little chapel. The cross with its shadow is stunning. Wonderful take on the challenge Jude, and timely indeed… xx
Lucky with the shadow. One of those things that you just have to photograph when you see it.
