Church in the country

Traveling through the rain yesterday, I decided to pull over and take a couple of pictures of this large church and cemetery:

I have a “walking around” camera that I often carry with me on the motorcycle; it’s also the camera I use during inclement weather and let the grandson use if we’re out on a photo walk. I had this Panasonic Lumix with me yesterday to take this picture.

I will eventually get back to this area and take more pictures of the cemetery and the church, probably during nicer weather.

Though not obsessed, I do enjoy photographing both churches and cemeteries. I took this picture about 10 days ago in Spring Grove, PA:

This church was built in 1849; a newer church, built across the street, is now used for regular services. Not sure how often this one is still used, if at all.

In April, I was in Lewistown (Thurmont), MD, taking pictures of St. John the Baptist Church:

Note: pictures of Spring Grove and Lewistown churches were taken with my prosumer Nikon camera.
