This is a photo blog of self expression. All the images I post are self assignments driven by the need for more creativity in my life. This is my escape from the everyday shooting as a professional photographer.

Church on a Hill
Black & white photography seems to add some kind of magic to our world. It simplifies things into shades of gray without the interference of that very loud element, color. This church got my attention because of its high perch that makes it seem like it was looking over the small town like a guardian angel,with the dark clouds in the sky representing evil. When I was recording this scene on film it reminded me of an Ansel Adams photograph titled"Mormon Temple, Manti, Utah". I used a 25 red filter to add contrast to the sky. LynnFreeny.com
