St John’s Lutheran Church | Aberdeen St | PERTH

This is an east window in St John’s which was the first Lutheran church established in Western Australia (1901). Lutheranism is a branch of Christianity that identifies with the theology of Martin Luther, who launched the Protestant Reformation in the 16th century. This window is simple in form, and displays several important christian symbols – the vine grows around and through the window and bears fruit and in turn becomes the altar wine. The Cross and Crown symbolises the Lutheran’s belief in the importance of Christ the King. The fleur-de-lis is a common three-leafed symbol representing the trinity.

I live in the Northern Territory of Australia. It is rugged, remote and ancient. I love to capture moments that we may easily miss or pass by. I need to slow down, live life, notice the little things and breathe….. rather than rush to my next meeting through the artificial world. Beauty is all around us, the more you look, the more you see…
Unless stated, my images are straight from the camera with minimal processing.
