I have neither the lens nor the skill to do this site justice in a photograph. Walking in darkness at least five mornings a week, I top the hill on Bois D'Arc... and, just over the crest of my favorite historic shopping strip... I catch sight of the glowing steeple of First Presbyterian Church. It just sits there and looks pretty...
The steeple rests atop this magnificent old structure, but I hardly ever even notice her... so enamored I am with gazing at the beacon which is her peak.
It is a well-tended landmark... a point of inspiration to at least one of us who walks in darkness.
This shot is REALLY poor... but, I love the cross on the top and I had the very good fortune of crossing paths with a real photographer not too long after I attempted these shots. I'll be signing up for one of his classes come spring. I can't wait! Maybe in a year or so, I'll be able to get the shots that convey a fraction more of the beauty I am blessed to enjoy.
