Foto Finish - Doors

Winter finally decided to blow in this week.  The highs have been in the high 30's/low 40's most of the week.  The high today is only supposed to be 34 F and there is snow in the forecast for tomorrow evening and Monday.  Other than running Drama Teen to the high school so she can take the ACT test this morning, nothing else is scheduled for today.  So my plan is to stay indoors as much as possible, get a bit of house work done, catch up on laundry, and sew a bit.  For the next little while I'm going to write this week's Foto Finish post, catch up on blog reading and hopefully my email as well. 

Barbara's suggested theme this week is "doors".  Not a typical photographic subject for me.  My Guy does a lot of architecture photography, he loves really old buildings.  So thinking back to the last time he found a worthy subject, I did remember a side trip we made during our fall break get away last year. 


Old churches are a favorite with My Guy.  Old churches have a certain grace and peace about them that make for some intereseting photographs.  This old Catholic church had stained glass in both front doors. I like stained glass, though the light wasn't the best for a really spectacular shot, I took this one anyway.   We just happen to see the spire from the highway as we were driving by on our way home.  My Guy utilized the family rule about travel photography (anyone who sees a photo op can call for a stop as long as we are not on a time schedule).  It was a nice way to spend an hour before we started the drive home. 

Now it's time for a second cup of coffee while I check out what other door photos are posted over on Cat Patches.  Have a wonderful weekend.

  1. I like this, Kate. It looks as if the sky was reflecting in the glass? The colors are interesting. I like when we're traveling through rural towns and find an old church with a steeple. The town is usually built around this one structure.
