Beautiful. The bell-ringing picture could be in National Geographic. You need to submit some of your work to the. Seriously.
Thanks, Dan. The bell-ringer turned out better than I thought it would since it was basically a snapshot. In every frame but one (eight altogether, I believe) the little girl was looking at me. The killer was when she turned to look at her mother. And that light! Gorgeous.
More information's needed here! Why only twice a year? Is the church a historic landmark? It certainly looks in great shape for a chuch without an active congregation.I guess it's time to visit uncle google. The photos are terrific - especially that bell ringer. I do like the door shot, too. There's just "something" about it - harsh and sad at the same time.
Linda -- The church has been closed since 1967. It still holds Mass twice a year and has services for funerals, I believe. It's now overseen by the St. Bridget Historical Society.
Greatly enjoyed your church photos. I'm with the others in particularly enjoying the bell-ringer. Glad you were there snappin'. Thanks for sharing.
