It was almost sundown, and rush hour. I tried several postiions, but I couldn't get the perspective I wanted without the shadow, unless I stood in the middle of the highway.I like the quality of the light you've caught in that photograph. I realise that it would have altered the perspective somewhat but it's a shot where I would have tried to position myself so that my shadow was not visible in the photograph,
I've passed this building for years but never stopped.I was coming home from a day of hiking and the light was so nice I had to. I thought it was a house at first, but when I got close I saw inside there is a foyer. Also if you look closely at the boarded up windows, you see they are closely spaced and very tall, which is a common feature of meeting houses/churches in this area. It indicates a single large room. I suppose it could have been a school house, but I didn't go inside to investigate.Nothing takes away from the lovely light you've captured though.
Just out of interest, are there any clues in the photograph to tell the viewer that it's an old church, if you had not told us I would have assumed it was an old barn and I would have been wrong.
