The steeple of Old South Church seems to grow out of nowhere. Late, seen across Boston Common. 


The Common is eerie and empty, the buildings lack form and context. Night is surprising.

    1. They are lit. So you CAN photograph them after dark. Boston has a lot of old churches. They are architecturally (and historically) interesting … and more important, lit at night. The camera can focus on it. So. We do.


        1. People assume if you take pictures of churches, there’s a deeper meaning. There may be for some people, but or most of us — we just like the architecture. Old buildings make great photographs. No symbolism required 🙂


          1. I agree the only point I was trying to make was that the sentiment people have is not always appreciated as it should be, but unless you understand what that meaning is its not such a stretch to appreciate another form of architecture the same and not have to grasp what the meaning is or something like that, maybe I don’t have a point just an opinion.
