Subject: The Church

I woke up this morning, got Mia up at the appointed hour, and we played, letting Beth sleep for a while. It was a gorgeous morning, just the kind I was hoping for since I wanted to head out with my camera for a bit.

I don't have a religious bone in my body but I like cool buildings. And I like this church. It's very modern yet, in parts, quite traditional. It turned out to be a perfect subject for my first, belated outing with my new camera.

Check out the full set or the slideshow.

Um, it won't let me look. It says it's a private page.

But I love the one you posted here :-)

Nevermind...I went over to your Easter set and then backtracked to the church photos.

Awesome. I love them.

Now I want that camera even more.

You could make some serious cash off of some of those pics! Well, maybe not... the church doesn't tend to pay out much... But someone out there needs those pics!

I know! I know! Quit your day job and become a full-time free lance photographer!!! You'd be terrific at it!!

What a beautiful church! Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful and I could view both with no problem. Sometimes it's just a glitch (or a far right wing nut conspiracy).

What a beautiful building! I should take it to our planning committee. (Ha! So not within the budget.)

do you give photography lessons?? you are AWESOME.

That is a most awesome church, for sure. :)

Have you thought of asking the church if they would want these photos? I'm sure they would. There, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness. So you'd have that goin' for you, which is nice.

Incredible... I mean... incredible. You should just print those and mail them anonymously to the church... I'm sure they would love to have those... cause they well you know.

I'm loving the blue, blue sky. Yummy!

Nice effect on the shot! You shouldn't worry about religion when photographing, just do what you feel!

The blue sky photo set is amazing! The colors are so bright and vivid that, for a moment, I thought I was looking at postcards, not pictures. Awesome job!

Beautiful church pics. Happy Mother's Day to the Mrs.

Those was some cool pictures! I always wanted to take cool pictures too, but the last time I used a camera it fell in my grandma's bathtub, while she was still in it! Was my big brothers idea, but when he got the camera back with hairs on it, I never touched his camera again.

Ops! I almost forgot!

Happy Mother's day, Chris!

Posted by: Rockchild at May 14, 2006 06:34 PM

Very cool pics!! They almost look more like paintings than photographs...mucho impressed. :)

Man, could you have ASKED for a more perfect sky when you took these?! I really like these photos. Really, I mean it. (Anybody want a peanut?) Ditto on the vivid colours - what kind of setting did you use to achieve that, or was it Photoshop enhanced? Either way, a fine bit of artistry!

your description reminded me of this:
like sputnik, round but quite pointy at parts

Those pictures are beautiful! What kind of filter did you use?

Oh, I wish I could get such vivid colors!
