Last week Weekly Photo Challenge: Silence
Turvey is a small village located on the River Great Ouse in Bedfordshire, England. We visited it because of one friend’s recommendation, she learned iconography in Turvey Abbey.
We got there around 1 pm in a sunny Saturday afternoon. Most of houses were beautiful stone cottages in the village. But surprisingly streets were quiet, just a few people were at outsides, occasionally some cars passed through a main road. When we walked around, felt like intruders, I even felt that I had to hold my breathe, otherwise we would break the silence .
We found the Abbey and the Monastery, but didn’t enter, didn’t want to disturb them.
Took as many photos as I could, then left. When I looked at them again, I can still feel the stillness.
