I love to take pictures of churches. I’m not an overly religious person, but I think churches are beautiful and the architecture so awe-inspiring. There is so much detail to take in when you really look closely at a church, especially the very old ones. So, even if I am out and about for other reasons, I always find myself detouring with camera in hand if there is an old church in the vicinity.
While Mike and I were walking around the Charles J. Clark Square in Windsor taking pictures, we came across this Anglican/Espicopal church and were drawn to it. I found it interesting that it was located close to both a war memorial and a statue honouring the underground railway. I don’t know if this makes sense or not, but somehow it was nice to see a place of faith near the memories of two such disturbing parts of our history, where the monuments were honouring the bravery of those who fought for what was right and just.
Here are some of the more interesting shots of the church. I tried to fix the really bad lighting of the shots taken looking up at the sky by replacing the overly bright sky, but it was my first attempt at doing that, so they could probably be much better. Oh well, anything new that I learn in Photoshop is a bonus with the limited learning time that I have, so I am thrilled that they look even a little bit better.
