The Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, Savannah, Georgia. At last, we are sharing our images from the exterior shoot of the cathedral. Like the beautiful interior renovation (see earlier posts below) this cathedral is a must-see when visiting Savannah. It is truly a place of worship and artistic beauty.
On Friday, January 20, 2017 our new President of the United States Donald J. Trump will take the oath of office at the Capitol. This is an earlier post showcasing our beautiful city from our Washington DC Photo Walk.
If you love beautiful architecture and history then Washington DC is the place to be for photography. We are native Washingtonians and no matter how many times we think we have photographed it all, we are reminded that we have just “tipped the iceberg” in shooting this amazing city. We have enjoyed many photo walks from our first photo walk and assignment in college until today. It’s beauty is unsurpassed in our estimation. Our next adventure will occur in September/October with photo walks at sunrise-sunset in well-known and “so-called” secret locations. They will be fabulous photo walks and with the incredible restaurants, hotels, history and people in DC, just the best life has to offer for photographers.
This favorite image of the United States Capitol from one of our photowalks is my current timeline image. It was shot in full-daylight with blazing sun, which, in DC, is a good time for the beauty of the alabaster to glow in its light. It is truly a “shining City on a Hill”!
The historic Bruton Parish Church in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia named for Bruton, Somersetshire, England is an incredibly beautiful and well-known as the church where many of the founding fathers of the US attended services. It remains an active house of worship since its beginning in 1660. The church has been used as a hospital during two wars and has served three generations of worshippers. We have visited, toured, and photographed Bruton Parish and Colonial Williamsburg since our childhood and it has many historical treasures to photograph and rich history for history buffs.
“Parish history dates to Middle Plantation in 1660 Among the men of the Revolution who attended Bruton Parish Church were Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Richard Henry Lee, George Wythe, Patrick Henry, and George Mason. But the building’s history, and that of its churchyard, goes back further in time. Dating from 1715, the present structure is the third in a series of Anglican houses of worship that began in 1660.”*
