Credence Table, Paimpont Abbey by s4sayer

Credence Table, Paimpont Abbey

This Credence Table is situated half way along the chancel and historically held the elements for the Eucharist before being taken to the altar for Consecration. As you can see, we put flowers this case dried hydrangeas. You may noticed that the ‘shelf' where the flowers are is not level. Hardly the original Abbey was constructed in 1198.

In my enthusiasm to take this shot, I omitted to notice the edges of the pews. NF SOOC, of course, doesn't take prisoners...and I should have been more vigilant before taking the shot. O me miserum;-(

I like this OB

I like your choice of subject with the pale walls around! Looks like hydrangeas here as a memory to someone! fav

I happen to like the tiny bits of pews, they help ground me a bit. The dried flowers add to the feel of timelessness.

There are two more of these hidden behind the 17C wood panelling and a third that has had a door fitted and receives the candle offertories, so it's nice that this one has been left in it's original condition.

A learning opportunity for you which is what Richard's challenge is all about! @vignouse. The distractions do make me smile though! Otherwise a very nice shot!
