Saint Mary's Orthodox Church

Saint Mary's Orthodox Church

On a recent drive through the horse country of Hunt Valley my eyes were once again drawn to this stunningly beautiful church under construction. I've passed it quite a few times during the building of it but decided to stop for a photograph or two this time

Country Church

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you enjoyed the weekend. Perhaps you had the opportunity to drive around the countryside and enjoy the farmland and other rural scenes. I sure enjoy these types of short getaways.

Just a couple of weeks ago I was driving home one evening as the sun was setting and came upon an old country church. There was something about the scene that caused me to turn around and drive back to grab a photo. Pulling along the side of the church, I took the photo below. Afterward I just hung out for about ten minutes and enjoyed the surrounding countryside.

The Churchyard

One of my favorite topics in photography is architecture and within that is the sub-topic of churches. These buildings can often be exquisitely detailed both inside and out.  While many churches look alike on the surface, a closer look always seems to show a little individuality with each having it's own character. The image below was taken on one of my road trips so I really have no information regarding the age of the building or it's history. This was really a drive-by opportunity that caught my eye so I took a couple of shots and moved on.

I decided to render this in black & white so I ran it through onOne's Photo Tools, applying the Wow Portrait filter. I know, a portrait filter doesn't readily come to mind when processing architectural shots but I love to experiment. :-)
