West Seattle Church
Saints Peter and Paul Church, North Beach, San Francisco, CA. 1970. Hasn’t changed much over the past few decades.
Stained Glass Window
Stained glass window in Galway, Ireland. The multiple spirals, I believe, are considered ‘sacred geometry’ and have been used as symbols for millennia.
St. Patricks Cathedral
Looking Back Thursday: North Beach, SF, 1970
St. Andrews Church
Shadow Steeple with Cross
This Being Sunday
I thought I would post a view of a steeple* and another rooftop that looks much like a steeple. I don’t think I would want to be the person who re-roofs the secular steeple.
*Note: Composition 101: Avoid light poles, in the frame, while shooting steeples :-).
St. Ann and Holy Trinity Church
The church is located in Brooklyn Heights. Went on a walking tour of Brooklyn Heights that was fun and informative. Homer Fink ( the tour-name of our guide ). Brooklyn Heights has been the home for such writers as Arthur Miller and Truman Capote as well as many other historical figures over the years. Very picturesque neighborhood in Brooklyn. This church has no steeple. Apparently, in the past, it was in need of repairing or replacing and it was decided to just take it down and not replace.
Spires and Wires
From the rooftop of the Pemco parking garage on Eastlake Ave. another church comes into view. The cream colored building with the curved roofline used to be the Seattle School District‘s warehouse. Years ago I worked in this building for about 3 weeks one summer as I was going through a rather extended time between jobs. I worked swing shift with one other employee, who I rarely saw until the end of the shift, around 11:30pm each night.
I think this is a Russian Orthodox Church, but could be Greek.
