IÂ neverÂ realised how much I appreciated architecture and building design until my tripÂ to the UK recently. Everywhere I went I’d see historical buildingsÂ andÂ find myself takingÂ pictures of them.Â But like all snap-happy adventures,Â my camera finally ran out of memory space andÂ I had to trash most of these pictures.Â But the ones I didÂ hold on to wereÂ the pictures I took ofÂ old churches. I am not overly religious, butÂ just the wordÂ “old” is enough to make me interested in anything (same goes toÂ words like “vintage”, “antique”, “retro” and my favourite, “old school”).Â The fact that these churches are nostalgic representations of historyÂ sharing space withÂ modern architectureÂ makeÂ them soÂ haunting,Â beautiful and romantic at the same time. IÂ regretÂ now that I only have pictures of church facades and not memories of my visits inside them. The next time I visit again, I’ll definitely make it a point to step in. Hey … I might even go for confession.
