This is an exploration of the Church of the Covenant and Trinity Church of Boston, MA.

The beautiful windows inside are all done by Tiffany Studio.
Here is an interior shot of the Church of the Covenant,
Church of the Covenant , built 1865-1867 in the Gothic Revival Style.
This 12 foot tall Tiffany lantern stands as the centerpiece for the sanctuary.
Trinity Church on Clarendon Street in Boston has an equally impressive interior.
This window features a scene from the Acts of the Apostles.

Angel of Trinity Church.
The ceiling of Trinity Church is a work of art all it’s own. John La Farge painted all the murals around the church.
Our world is made up of a variety of lines – some drawing our eyes from one point to another, some are more symmetrical.

Anytime you photograph a reflective surface it dramatically changes the initial subject – adding light, dimension, and texture.
Trees are beautifully reflected off the water of the Contoocook River.

Nature is full of visible regularities, symmetry, in living and non- living things no two are exactly alike.

You can almost hear the crackle of this fire.

St. Peter’s Church had its beginnings in Concord, NH, in 1905 as a mission church for the “North End” parishioners of St. John’s. It was originally located on Walker St. In 1955 the present day church on N. State St. was erected. This is another of the churches who’s fate is yet to be decided by the diocese amid their consolidation.
This roundel window is located on the stairway to the choir.
This is one of three commemorative windows from the old church on Walker St.

The selections of photographs in this week’s post are an exploration of shades of gray.
Lines and shadows created by a fire escape against a brick wall in Concord, NH, provide a full range of gray tones and textures.
This image takes advantage of the dappled light through the trees and collected rain water to generate a range of gray tones in a carved stone memorial found in the St. Paul’s School Cemetery, Concord, NH. The pelican is a medieval symbol of piety and a symbol of the school.
This image of the main street of downtown Concord, NH, was taken using color film and was then processed as slide film, and printed black and white, to generate this interesting effect.
The play of shadows and light against the gray background of the bark of a beech tree.
Taken at Sewell’s Falls, in Concord, NH, the dark gray shadows create an interesting contrast with the range of lighter shades of gray provided by the deterioration of the concrete.
There is a touch of fall in the air lately, reminding me that it is time to pick some flowers for the blog:
Sunflowers are my favorite flowers, vibrant, strong and beautiful.
This sunflower almost seems lit from within.
Turning its head to meet the sun.
A cluster of little rays of sunshine.
A glowing face captured at the end of the day still holding the sun.
