To wrap up October’s See Differently 2016 challenge here’s a slide presentation of all 15 of my photos. Hope you enjoy it and I hope you’ll check out those of the other participating photographers. To view all the other images for the challenge, enter our tag #seedifferently2016 into the Word Press Reader.
In a way, this one is my favorite because I didn’t think they would even notice me from across the street when suddenly one of the girls started waving to me. It turns out as I was watching them, they started watching me – a good twist on the seeing differently idea!
Thanks Robyn over at Captivate Me for coming up with this challenge idea and for hosting!
Alone in the church with no lights on felt a bit like a guilty little kid trespassing as usual. But I never let that stop me before. This time I could take the pictures I wanted to. I’m usually photographing grandkids and nephews being baptized or making First Communion and weddings. Not this time. This time it was a very intimate setting.

Thanks to Robyn G for hosting this challenge on her Captivate Me blog! I did learn a lot from participating, generated a bunch of new shots and as a result came up with some good ideas for a new series!
The original steeple on this church was damaged in the hurricane of 1938 and was replaced with this structure. This is where I was baptized, made my First Communion, Confirmation, and was married. I went to school right behind it. This is a view from a point of view that looks so different because as a youngster those trees were either not there or too small to obscure the view.
Approaching the main entrance of the church is wide door with a stained glass transom window above it that reads “Open wide the doors to Christ.”
