Sunday Morning.

This Sunday morning was spent, somewhat appropriately in church.  The building had long since been abandoned.  And, what remained would be considered destructive ruins to some … to me, it was a place of beauty I was excited to explore.

Long ago as a little curly headed mischevious girl, I loved to enter and explore buildings that I wasn’t supposed to.  I never took anything but I spent hours looking through old things and truly loving the time spent there.  There was always an edge of excitement being somewhere I shouldn’t be.  And, peeking through old things that were stored away was completely interesting, too.

Years later, I still have some of those same feelings when I’m urban exploring and photographing abandoned buildings.

Back in the church, I heard the most beautiful guitar music.  There was a guy who sat, totally enthralled in his playing and I explored listening to the sounds of his incredible talent.

Climbing up into the balcony area of the church, I sat there for the longest time just hearing the melodies. While looking around the vast, ornate church, I felt closer to God than I had in most other churches I had ever been in on a Sunday morning.

It was a great day.

A really, really great day.

  1. Hi Amy, Great Pic!! Isn’t it great to be like a fly on the wall come upon something wonderful by happenstance? It’s like a treasure waiting for you and only you to discover it. Finding that young man playing the guitar in an abandoned church was a gift, just for you. Imagine everything that took place there before you entered the site. This is how I feel about my Sea Glass.
