St Jude-on-the-Hill


I took this photo of the interior of the parish Church of St Jude-on-the-Hill with my mobile phone camera. The interior reminds me a bit of Jan Vermeer's or Pieter de Hooch's paintings. In their works the light often enters from a window.

St Jude-on-the-Hill is in the middle of Hampstead Garden Suburb, a model residential community planned by Henrietta Barnett for housing of all social groups, although the atmosphere there today is definitely middle class.
