Architecture. A Challenge in Black & White.

The Lost in Translation blog is hosting a black and white challenge on architecture. The guest host of the challenge, Cardinal Guzman, said to find an interesting local building to photograph, one that we could return to in April.

“When you’re shooting try to look for interesting angles, lines, curves and/or details that people might ignore. Try shooting from afar, see how it feels, then try some close-ups. Compare the shots and think about which ones that are most appealing.”

I decided on an old church that dates back to the 1800s. There are a number of buildings on the property so I can’t say for sure which parts are from what era. But, the church grounds have always been interesting to me. It has such a grandeur to it, which is why I am submitting this first photo for Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness as well. (This is last week’s MM~Week 44 link. When Week 45 comes out, I will add that link here.)


Like Cardinal suggested, I walked all around the building looking for little details, lines and angles. It truly is an elegant structure. Here are some of the shots I took. I left one in color as it provided a different view to the day that I thought some may enjoy.

    1. Thanks! The clouds are a bit more dramatic with editing. If it really looked that intense during my visit, I would have stopped for some prayer then too:)
