My first thoughts were of churches I have
photographed over the past few years.
This shot can never be captured again as
someone in their wisdom has cut down the
tree which created this gorgeous shadow.
The interior of many churches,
particularly the old bluestone variety,
has been retained despite changing
the functionality of the church
for modern masses/services.
The craftsmanship in these windows
is from another era altogether.
Many old country churches
are being re-purposed.
The first church I ever attended is now a barn of sorts.
Another, similar to this,
is now a family residence.
Then there are members of society which
think this is what a Church should look like.
In this case 140 years of history was turned to
rubble in a few hours early one morning.
There was speculation that it had something to do
with child sex abuse within Churches as
several churches were destroyed by fire in the Geelong area.
it will moved slightly and will be part of a school complex
and future generations of children will be told
how their parents or grandparents
were married in that corner of the playground.
Not as silly as it sounds as MGW and I were married in
what is now an Aldi car park in Geelong 🙂
