The Parsonage

Nikon D7000 10-24mm @ 12mm ISO 640 1/1600 f/11 Lr3, ASSA; PsCS5

Located on the back side of the First Congregational Church in Riverside, California is its parsonage.  After capturing this image I almost had the urge to donate some paint to the church, but I don’t think I could afford the amount of paint that would be necessary to spruce up the parsonage, and then it would no longer make such an interesting subject.  I applied some painterly effects to this image using Alien Skin Snap Art.

    I can’t imagine what the cost of the upkeep of these Church buildings could be, but sometimes the collections don’t amount to much more that paying the monthly bills. Too bad because beautiful buildings like this don’t last forever without maintenance. Nice work on this, Wayne. Virtually no noise in the sky in the enlargement.
