Photographer's Note

Today is Good Friday.

So this is a picture dedicated to all the christians who celebrate Easter. According to the bible, Jesus Christ was crucified and killed on this day. Easter celebrates his resurrection, which for christians is the ultimate proof that JC really is/was the son of god. Hence the omnipresence of this rather grim torture scene in christian imagery and art. Although Christmas seems to have taken over, Easter really is the most important holy day on the Christian calender.

I'm not 100% about the "2012 years ago today", though, since our calender has been tampered with a few times.

I wish all christians a happy Easter.

This picture shows a roadside crucifix in Oud-Rekem, a small village near the Maas river, close to the Dutch border. It was elected as Flanders' most beautiful village in 2008 and makes a good destination for a relaxed day out.
