Out of the Jurisdiction: Church in Georgetown

While I was up on the North Shore of Massachusetts on Friday,
I drove around some of the little towns I knew when I was a kid.


The congregational church in Georgetown caught my eye.  It was a dull day with light rain, and the image of the church was already pretty drab.  So, I went all the way and made it black and white.
To my eye, this makes the architectural details stand out while masking the blah-ness of the weather.

What a delightful building - presumably mostly constructed of timber? The rather flat lighting works really well on this one.

That's what a New England Congregational Church should look like, although this is a bit more ornate than some. Nice shot!

Good job on that photo. I can't tell it was a nasty day at all. Beautiful details on that church.

The black and white enhances the winter mood.

A good reason to use B&W, one of many. The arches under the peaked roof are an unusual feature.

A beautiful capture of a truly beautiful church and the B&W capture is perfect for the day!! I do hope you have a wonderful week and a great holiday, Jack!! Enjoy!!

It stands out beautifully!

Very nice quality black and white. Our weather looks as if it's going to prompt me to make a similar switch.

Black and white can be quite magical! It looks great here.

It is an attractive building and works well with B&W.
