Photographer's Note

In the beautiful city of Haarlem I took this picture. It's a detail of St. Bavo's church.
It is built in the Gothic style of architecture and started its life as a Catholic church. It has been a cathedral from 1559 until it was confiscated in 1578 and converted to Protestantism. Subsequently a new Catholic cathedral known as the Cathedral of Saint Bavo was built in Haarlem.

Until 1831 graves were made in the church. A local story is that there is a grave of a child who used to hit his mother. After a time his hand started growing above his grave, and a copper plate had to be installed on the grave to stop the hand from growing.
