I attended my granddaughter's wedding yesterday in Salt Lake City. They had hired a professional photographer plus there were lots of guests with cameras so I didn't want to get in the way. I did; however, want to get a picture or two to post in this thread so I decided to take a few Infrared images of the Salt Lake Temple. The weather was not cooperating for IR photography but I decided to take a few shots anyway.

Fabulous shots of a grand building--I think it is a refreshing interpretation. Our son lives in SLC and over the years I've come to appreciate the grandeur and significance of the Temple. Thanks for sharing.

I got up early this morning and drove to my old neighborhood. This is the church that I attended from 1943 to 1993.
There used to be a mansion across the street where the person who paid for the church lived. I stood in that spot which
is now a Wendy's parking lot to take this shot.

Hi Dave,
you've shot a very nice Neogothic church.

Thank you for hosting
Klaus

First of all Gordon, please send my best wishes to your granddaughter and her husband.

The temple looks interesting in IR - first I thought there's snow...

Thanks you very much for showing
Klaus

Very interesting shots. I rarely see IR shots, so it was interesting to see the effect.

What better day to go and shoot churches than on Sunday. :) It was a tough time of day (right after noon), but I gave a a go...

Downtown Manchester has numerous churches. Here is St. Marie's, on the West side of town (a French Canadian area):

I have shown several local country churches in previous editions of the CS – the structures tend to be both very small and plain. This morning, I made a quick visit to Baltimore Ohio – a small town in southeastern Ohio. Several of the churches there date from the second half of the 20th century, but they are still relatively plain in comparison with many found in major cities. Here are two from Baltimore:

Christ United Methodist Church

Interesting churches, Bob. The clean, simple lines are different from the older churches in the northeast.

I went looking for churches despite today's difficult lighting. Some churches lost steeples during hurricanes, some churches were made of
wood, some of stone but all were interesting and most had angles that I found difficult to photograph, some, as Bob pointed out earlier,
had telephone and electric wires that were a pain to remove.

Nice photos Paul. You handled the bright over head sun very well.
Thanks! It was challenging, with the position of the sun. Especially in the first set, where the sun was right overhead. I used a polarizing filter, and needed to post process out some of the glare.

Nice pair Bob. Many of the small towns around here has similar churches - very simple and plain buildings. Unlike the older ornate churches in the city.

Really unique design on the first one, classic look on the second, and modern on the third. Well done!

Right across the street from a Catholic cathedral, in Manchester is this cute stone church (Grace Espiscopal). No way to get a shot without electrical lines in the way...
