The Ghost of Churches Past
Old buildings ( especially interesting are churches) intrigue me, as I know they do many people and I have driven past these ruins several times on the way to one of my favorite hiking spots here along the Eastern Shore of Maryland. On this occasion, I was travelling with a friend who also enjoys photography as a hobby, and as soon as she saw these ruins, she had the same reaction I did: “We have GOT to photograph” this!
And so with an ally by my side (all the better to ignore the really old “No Trespassing Sign” my dear), we spent a few minutes photographing the ruins of this old church.
I would have loved to have had blue skies overhead as a way to contrast the bright green ivy and ground covers that were overtaking these walls; but grey skies were dominant, so I settled for black and white medium.
The first picture (above) gives an overview of the site. The rest are a few interpretations of views I found interesting.
