Day 88- Stained Glass, Stained Wood

by Drohask March. 29, 2010 2584 views

We've had it in our mind for some time to do a little walkabout and take some pictures of the architecture of local churches. We've seen photographs of many ornately designed houses of worship, and yet no two are the same. Whether it be intricate stained glass patterns, warm wood textures or rugged stone structures, each offers a new visual experience.

One of the things that draws us to photograph churches is that no matter how tiny they may be, they always are built with a level of craftsmanship that is admirable. It is easy to appreciate the artistry employed in these structures, and perhaps there is no more appropriate time to show our appreciation than during Holy Week.

Hask photographed this window on a church in downtown Dartmouth. Her eye was drawn to the combination of both curved and straight lines in the architecture.

Hask bonus shot. This is the main door of the same church featured above. The worn stain shows signs of plenty of usage over the years.

Dro photographed this textured window set into a stone wall on another church in Dartmouth.

Dro bonus shot. This is a side door on the same church that was featured in the first two photos posted. With wood, metal, glass, and paint, it has a little of everything.

Every one of these is exquisitely shot. I'm especially drawn to all the natural elements in #3 - made it a fave!
Have a blessed Holy Week and Easter.
