Historic church

I had errands this afternoon in Jasper, which is the county seat. I had to pick up a check from the coffee house for the last gig we did in August. Then a dash by the seed and feed store to stock up on dog food, bird seed, and chicken feed. As I drove through downtown, I passed the old Methodist Church. It's a historic place. Franklin D. Roosevelt attended the funeral of Willaim Brockman Bankhead. He was the Speaker of the House of Representatives. Harry Truman also attended the funeral. 

It's a beautiful old church. As I drove up the street today, I looked over and the clouds behind the church were stunning. No one was behind me so when I stopped at the stop sign, I rolled down the window and snapped a picture.

I'm out of steam tonight so this is the best I have to offer.


  1. You have come 'back' a lot since your operation.

  2. This is pretty damn impressive. Apologies not warranted.

  3. Oh my, those clouds behind that historic church are impressive for sure. The church is too and looks like it's been well cared for. I love historical buildings and the history behind them. Hope today finds you renewed and refreshed.

    No apologies are necessary, it's beautiful!!

  5. It is a fantastic best. Words escape as I want to express my admiration but I have nothing.

  6. My kind of clouds, I can see all kinds of things in clouds like that. You make an impressive shot, even 'from the hip!'

  7. Impressive pic! And thanks for the history lesson -- new info for me.

  8. This is a dramatic photo, like the clouds are watching over this church. This church looks like a mausoleum or something from Washington D. C.

  9. This is a captivating photograph. So often those "on the fly" photos are the surprising and exciting ones. Well done!
