This church in Victoria British Columbia

Reminded me of…

many Australian churches which were built on land

away from the central business district of the time. 

Now the lands it stand upon is probably

prime real-estate and worth a fortune

as Victoria (BC) expands.

 

The steep pitch  of the roof also reminded me

of many older churches designed in the same manner. 

I was once told the steep pitch was to

assist snow to slide off the roof. 

I don’t know if that is correct, or not.

Churches.

My main focus this week is on

Saint Peter and St Paul Church

at Ashby in Geelong.

which is also in Geelong.

Doors and windows were my focus that day until

I realised I had a gorgeous shadow, as well.

in Victoria, at least.

I think it is a church although it could be a local Hall.

The shape of the windows have me leaning towards a

Church as Halls had/have rectangular windows.
