Photo taken last night during The Glow light festival in my town.
Its our Augustijnenchurch.
It was a fantastic spectacle
The light would change in multiple colors and themes.
These blue lights would drop down from the top
and creep up from the bottom.
We even had a full moon to top it of

Inspiration for Bram Stoker's Dracula
"For a moment or two I could see nothing, as the shadow of a cloud obscured St. Mary's Church. Then as the cloud passed I could see the ruins of the Abbey coming into view; and as the edge of a narrow band of light as sharp as a sword-cut moved along, the church and churchyard became gradually visible... It seemed to me as though something dark stood behind the seat where the white figure shone, and bent over it. What it was, whether man or beast, I could not tell. "
Scots Presbyterian Church is a Presbyterian church located at 90 South Terrace, on the corner of Norfolk and Parry Streets, in Fremantle, Western Australia. It was the first Presbyterian Church built in Fremantle and one of only six to decline amalgamation with the Uniting Church.
The Fremantle City Council, approved plans for Scots Presbyterian Church at a special meeting in March 1890, and on 26 March 1890 the foundation stone was laid by John Forrest. The architect for the building was Talbot Hobbs, the building contractor was Messrs. J. Petrie and Company, with internal decorative painting carried out by E. Bockelmann. The building was completed at a cost of £2,000 and officially opened on 26 November 1890.
Gaslight was introduced in 1902 and replaced with electric light in 1905. The church was re-roofed at a cost of £150 in 1911, and in 1975 the Church was awarded a A$15,000 National Estate grant for repairs to brickwork and wiring. In 1985 a wall around the church was constructed, with a rear shed added on in 1994.
This photo is taken from the rear and highlights how the church today is very much a part of the life of Fremantle, with the Fremantle Markets next door.
