Friday Shoot-Out: Places of Worship

The my town shoot out subject this week is places of worship. 

The above four pictures were taken at an outside place of worship which has a large statue (inside the triangular structure) of Padre Pio.  It is located in Buena, I believe, which is next door to Vineland, which is my town.  I like the idea of it being outside, adding something natural and organic to the sacred.
This is a church in Washington DC.  I took this picture from our tour bus.  We were on the top of the double-decker--had to watch out for branches!

This church is in Boston.  Boston is a wonderful place to visit!  I went there for a conference and I hope to get back there for a visit someday!

I hope you enjoyed.  Have a great weekend, everyone!!


  1. A beautiful display of places of worship. Love the shot of the one in Washington.

  2. i like that outside place of worship, great idea and it is beautiful

  3. Boston is also on my wish list. I've seen so many churches in Europe and none of my own country.
    I like the idea of open air worship also. remember my childhood, a long, long time ago, when we went to summer camp up in the woods above Prescott Az. and we had vespers everynight in the forest.... wonderful memory - thank you for digging it out.

  4. I love your detail shots in the beginning -- the benches. Your shot of the National Cathedral in Washington brought back memories because my grandfather, an artist, did work on one of the small chapels in the cathedral. I also remember the church in Boston.

  5. Love your shots! Wish i could visit these cathedral too, they are awesome!


  6. Oh beautiful...don't ya just love old churches! Wonderful shootout! Hugs, Sarah

  7. I really like the contrast in the churches you have shown us, the simple outdoor place of worship and the grand city churches. My favourite shot is the third.

  8. The Boston church is my favorite. But I know how hard it is to keep branches out of you pictures while moving in a car it's good picture as well.

  9. You chose such great places of worship. :) I like the idea of worshiping least in good weather.
