Photography, The Old Abandoned Church

Here’s what’s left of the steeple and the frame of an abandoned church that is probably over a hundred years old.  I remember seeing it proudly standing tall even though it had become weathered and old due to its age about five years ago. But, alas this past week when taking a drive back into the mountains of Western North Carolina looking for a farm where you could buy a live Christmas tree, its collapse surprised and saddened me.   2010A copyright

Since this building will probably disappear from view before I return to this area again, I decided to stop and capture some last  photographs of it before it completely falls to the ground.

  1. There is a certain beauty in dilapidation….

  2. I feel so sad when seeing these photos. Sigh. Happily life continues.

  3. Interesting article, Mary.

    Sometimes the most interesting buildings to photograph are abandoned and in decay.

  4. I have fallen in love with Western North Carolina. I have lived most of my life in Washington State, but for some odd reason, every time we go to west NC, I feel at home. Beautiful photos!

  5. this is so sad. It’s like watching the collapse of faith
