After another interview today I drove around Warren Co. with a friend I have met this year through flickr. I met her at her home and we drove to the Palmyra church near her home. Built in 1870 it is in need of restoration that has been delayed for some reason,but still beauty can be found in these historic buildings.
I am told this church was built by ship builders and that it is truelly square still to this day.This speaks to the care that was put into the churches building at the time. They often used the finest of hard woods harvested from area homesteaders,and built by hand much in the fasion they would raise a barn.
This one maintains it's fine wood work in pews and alter areas,and can be viewed from the tall cathedral windows.
As a photographer we usually attempt to avoid lens flares and bright overhead sunlight with the use of polarizer filters or hoods.,But there are times when lens flare can be a beautiful planned element in a photo. In both these flare images I saw the colors in my viewfinder and focused in hopes the colors would come through to the image.
