Monochrome Monday Looking Up

This is a post for Monochrome Monday hosted by @old-guy-photos A challenge I try to join as often as I can, the other challenges he hosts are Sepia Saturday and Tree Tuesday, all fun challenges and worth checking out.

For this weeks post, I am going back to St Mary's in Long Island City which I shared some shots of the statues in my Sepia Saturday Post

Its not a huge church but is quite beautiful and classy I think, and with the colors on the street I felt a mono shot gave it the best justice, I went back to my Blueish style of B&W for this one

And finishing off with a shot of one of the Doors which make shtis post also fit the Disctinctive Doors tag started by myself. I went with a sepia sort of Mono for this one, it just seemed to work for this shot.

Thanks I do appreciate the support and resteem

I have always and forever been in awe of the big churches back East. So many Cathedrals in this predominantly Catholic part of the country.

I had always gone to a big, old church back in Connecticut, but, now I get to go to one here. :)

Perhaps that is why it feels like home. :)

I do like the blue, as you know, I have always been a fan of it, but, like you, I also like to mix it up for fun. It used to be that churches were never locked up, but, that was back when people thought it was a sin to steal from them.

Sigh... Oh, the times have changed.

when I first came across locked up churches I was shocked to be honest, now I am used to them but it still feels so wrong to me

I do love the old churches and cathedrals, speaking of which isnt it devastating what happened to Notre Dame so sad to watch

You probably know me well enough to know I always did so much blue and White for my monos, but now I mix it up a lot, but still slip back to the blues now and again :)

Thanks Kindly :)

That is a pretty impressive church. I have always thought it would be cool to attend a church like this. I have been going to the same one for over 40 years, but it is still a relatively new building compared to this one.

·

I would have loved to ave seen what it was like inside but as with many of the churches here they are locked at the time I go there in my morning walks

This colour makes the photo looking quite spooky! Could be a shot in the Lord of the Ring!

Thanks I used to always do blue and white for my mono now I try and mix it up 😎

Always love seeing the design of these grand churches. The entrance doors are beautiful with the three designs on the glass.
The Notre Dame church burning in Paris is a terrible loss. 😢

·

Ohh yes the whole world is in shock especially those who have been fortunate enough to have seen it, my thoughts are with the people of Paris who must be in total shock

·
·

I was watching Notre Dame burning on the news. People of Paris were crying and singing Ava Maria.
What a loss of so much history, not to mention it took 200 yrs, to build it.

·
·
·

I think so many of us were watching it in total shock my heart goes out to the people of France

What a beautiful looking church the photos really do it justice the way you have captured it such fine details love it :)

·

Thanks it is quaint but very nice i would love to go see inside it one day, but like most churches here they are locked early morning whenI go there

·
·

It would be interesting to see if that spier is hollow and you can see right up to the top :)

·
·
·

That would be interesting to see but I suspect you would need a contact in the church to see that

·
·
·
·

I am sure with your smooth talk you will be able to manage that...lol :)

·
·
·
·
·

LOL If I ever get there when it is open I will try for sure

·
·
·
·
·
·

Definitely worth a try :)
