urban decay

Today I tagged along with Bill and another photographer on an urban decay kind of photo shoot.

We snuck into an abandoned school, church and a post office. We didn’t really take photos in the church. It was more or less an over-photographed location.

It was a lot of fun. Here are a few shots to whet your whistle.

Some keep the Sabbath going to Church


Lately, my Sunday morning Facebook feed is getting jammed with updates and photos from people going to church.

Church isn’t my thing, which makes me think of the Emily Dickinson poem: Some Keep the Sabbath going to Church. And if by “God”, Dickinson means the universe, the poem is perfect.

Some keep the Sabbath going to Church – (236)

BY EMILY DICKINSON

Some keep the Sabbath going to Church –
I keep it, staying at Home –
With a Bobolink for a Chorister –
And an Orchard, for a Dome –

 

Some keep the Sabbath in Surplice –
I, just wear my Wings –
And instead of tolling the Bell, for Church,
Our little Sexton – sings.

 

God preaches, a noted Clergyman –
And the sermon is never long,
So instead of getting to Heaven, at last –
I’m going, all along.
