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.
Beautiful pictures of St. Bridget Church. I am a great-great grandson of the family who owned the property the church sits on. My of my family are laid to rest just down the road in the cemetery. Thanks for sharing.
