the history is gone

Back in October I posted pictures of an old church that I passed everyday while driving to pick up the kids from school.  At the time I just felt that if I didn’t take the time to stop and capture the beautiful, old church while I could, it would be gone.  Two days ago I noticed a large backhoe parked behind the church and knew that only a few days would remain of that church that had always caught my eye.

A Slight Detour <—-  click here for that first post.

Today is cloudy and rainy which fit the mood I wanted for these pictures, I had only to darken them a bit more to add to the mood I was in when I stopped.

Very happy to see that someone cut out the cornerstone and kept it.

One of the things that had originally drawn me to this church were the stained glass windows and they were just thrown here in a pile.  Tore me up!

I wonder if anyone else around here even noticed this place or feel any kind of loss with it gone.  Makes me sad when the new replaces the old.

  1. great photos of a sad event. Hopefully there was a good reason for taking it down but I agree with you that it seemd SUCH a huge waste for those beautful windows to just be trashed 😦
