  1. Woohoo, it's Monochrome Monday time! Until I can get married in one, I won't set foot inside a church, but i often appreciate the buildings themselves. And, having been Darylized, I always love your photographs! ;-)

  7. I love how buildings of that time period had so much detail. The filigre work makes me all giddy.

  10. I do wonder where you are for this shot - marvelous detail. Yes, I haven't done monochrome since long before digital, so the results are often quite astonishing. Do you remember the Box Brownie!!!

  12. So much little pieces sewed together in a tall tower - each piece carries a hope for a better life! Lovely!

  13. Daryl: You said you aren't big on sepia. I'm not either; however, some photos just scream sepia, sepia!

    I love the bell tower in your photo. Black and white is just perfect. Where is the church located? Surely not NYC!

  20. From back in the day whenit was all about decoration--lovely photo, especially in b & W.
    re: the morning glories: I can't grow them from seed either. I finally decided to break down and buy a small plant or two at the nursery. Viola!!

  21. It looks a bit ornate for a Baptist church...but then the Baptists can fool you if you're not careful. ;-)

    Excellent composition and tack-sharp. Delightful shot, D.

  25. Love the texture in the wood. It looks like a fancy version of a common New England steeple.

  29. Cool angle! And great contrast. And my word verification is "frugu". I wonder if that's fake blowfish sushi or something.
