One Church in Danville

In the center of Danville, Virginia, there are several, high steepled churches to attend, or in my case to photograph. This one I saw while walking near the hospital while I was waiting for my wife to complete a routine medical appointment. Having my new iPhone 7 Plus with me, I trusted the photos would have exceptional quality. And they do. The telephoto capability of the phone’s camera is wonderful! I love making photos of this sort of architecture.

This Old Church

As we near the Easter holiday, I wanted to post these photos of an old church I found yesterday in Floyd, Virginia, in the midst of the Blue Ridge Mountains. It’s adjacent to the main highway into this small, scenic and historic town, and I have passed it many times before now without noticing. This time I saw it on the way into town, and on the way back out I pulled off the road and made my photos. The lesson learned for me is that no matter how many times you think you are paying attention to what’s around you, the more you are often surprised by what you fail to see. From the condition of the church, it’s obvious to me that it’s been unused for many years, but when it was a regular place of worship for many local residents I am sure it was a much more vibrant building.
