Pictures of Churches

Churches serve as social and spiritual centers of a community. Consequently, church buildings often reflect the finest architecture and architecture of a community. This gallery shows a small subset of the church buildings that I found to be of interest.

The gallery is small because, when I started photographing buildings in a town, I was worried that I might offend someone by taking pictures of one church and not of another. I finally realized that I was being foolish. People have constructed some extremely beautiful churches that I have passed because the light was bad, I couldn't find a parking space, or I didn't have my camera with me. I was silly to think that people would take offense of my taking a picture of their church, or they would be offended if I missed their church.
