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!


Seeing Differently Challenge 2016-Last 5

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!

Seeing Differently 2016, 9 & 10 of 15

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.after-the-hurricane-j-web

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.”
