Tom, which church is that?
St. Paul's Lutheran in Palmer.
Tasty stuff, Tom. Love the sky above the Ford truck.
That was a nice storm rolling in, dropped quite a bit of rain. Couldn't decide which one I liked better, the clouds or the truck.
Insulators! My dad and mom had quite a collection of those at one time - glass, ceramic, all colors. Beautiful.My favorite is the truck in front of the house. It's just so beautifully composed. And that church's architecture is interesting. I wouldn't have guessed it for Lutheran - probably because of the spire/bell tower. It looks vaguely Greek Orthodox or something. Very attractive, though.
Thanks, Linda. I remember when insulators were the big thing on the antiques market, went for quite a bit of money. This old house must have had a hundred of them, but the floor was mostly gone and getting to them would have been almost impossible. Not that they're worth much anymore.I want to get into that Lutheran church and see what it looks like inside.
You've always said you like un-boring skies in your photos. #9 in this series is awesome, with a seriously dramatic sky. All are very nice. #9 is WOW!
All i can say is that the last few days have seen some dramatic skies--almost too dramatic, actually.
I certainly would love to see a series of church interiors. Often, especially the older ones, have woodwork and stained glass. Not always easy to discern from the outside. And there's an abandoned cathedral/sanctuary feel to many of the abandoned structures you capture, as well.
Matt -- I've been trying to learn pano techniques for architecture, and no better way of learning would be to shoot the interiors of churches. Stay tuned...
