While I was blown away by this church when I first walked in, I didn’t feel comfortable shooting it up like the other churches I’ve been in. I got the shots from the back, and that was it. I can’t explain why I couldn’t go farther into the church, I just felt I shouldn’t, like it would be rude and irreverent to do so.
I love shooting churches. When I saw that St. Mary Magdalene was hosting its 4th annual European Festival, it was a no-brainer. No special appointments that needed to be made. I wouldn’t feel like I was putting anyone out while I shot up their church. Most folks would be checking out the arts and crafts, food and dancing, and I would have the church to myself. Mwuah-ah-ah-ahhhh. (Sorry, shouldn’t do a sinister laugh about churches.) As you can see, it’s a beautiful church. And the food and entertainment was great, too! (Found this one waiting in the wings from September. Ooops!)
Had to add HDR toning to this one!
So I got to spend a few days in New York. Someone close to me won tickets to Saturday Night Live, invited me along, and we did a whirlwind sightseeing tour of some of the more famous sites over the course of two days. I shot over 1000 pics in that time, so I have tons to share here!
I’m fortunate that the early morning sun shines into my backyard unobstructed. One recent a.m., the sun was throwing some really good light onto things. And outside I went.
I don’t know what slithered across this web, but I thought that was interesting.
Early morning dew on a web.
Almost 6 years ago, I visited Chagrin Falls. A few cameras later, and lots more experience under my belt, I wanted to go back. Kristen wanted to go, too.
