From St. Mary’s to St. Paul’s… I love shooting the exteriors of religious places like churches and temples because they’re often so interesting… especially the ones with older styles of architecture.
I was actually a history minor in college and focused on religious history, so that gives me even more of a chance to give significance to structures like these – I can’t wait to visit the many Chinese and Buddhist temples of Taiwan.
Anyway, on to the photo:
I decided to go with black-and-white because it had just started raining. Of course, this happened AFTER I waited to cross through traffic and was separated from my car… but I think it was worth it. I do have to say that when I was zooming in to make sure I didn’t need to touch anything up, I was scared – after seeing what looked like dust in the top left. Then it hit me: it’s rain.
Anyway, make sure to click on the photo as usual to get to the flickr page and see the full version. And thanks so much for the recent comments – they make me want to keep posting! I’ll probably be posting at least one per day as I got a lot from this outing. I’m still tweaking the other photos in Aperture – trying to get somewhat of a balance of realism in my saturation…
