The Church (back)

On my last photo excursion of the year, I did what I always try to do: go around back. The day was cold and windy, so I didn’t stay back there very long. But I saw what I needed to see.

Catholic Life

I like to see what sorts of things are at the back of churches, which goes along with how I like to look around the backs of things: the mundane parts of things are attractive.

In this case, I hit a double jackpot – a hand-lettered cardboard box and someone’s left-behind sparkly sunglasses!

Trinity

These spires are the reason we were there, since they’re visible from the highway well before you get to town. And we’re not the kind of people to not check out spires!

A spiral of light

This. This made the entire stop worthwhile.

(Upon reflection, it may have made the whole trip worthwhile.)

Chandelier + Angel

Look up, when you get inside, and you’ll be rewarded by a lovely painted ceiling, with puffy clouds and an angel. And a chandelier.
