the light of the world

I first visited this place in May, and a return trip so soon seemed sort of redundant: I wasn’t sure there would be any new photographic opportunities. But still, we were in the area and it seemed silly to not stop.

This shot was – I thought – about the light on the wall between those two pews. And then, Photoshop helped me to see that it was really about the weird sunlight on the left side, radiating outward from the statue and crucifix. (This is the second blog appearance by the statue.)

Station

Those thick adobe walls are no match for the heat and humidity in South Texas, so sometimes that fan is called into service.

Hours grow shorter

The setting sun, lighting the front of the old church, with the afternoon’s storm cloud moving ever further away.

Family portrait

I’m not intending to be sacrilegious, but it is a family portrait.

Font + candles

When I use my phone to make a photo and I get a result like this, I sort of wonder why I even bother with the other “real” camera…
