    Lens 2 Jesus

    I found a 100+ year old Catholic Church in Denver, Colorado. Attached to the church is a beautiful series of glass murals depicting Jesus being crucified. Here's a close up of one of the mural showing Jesus.

    I love it, Steve! How big was that mural?
    Please tell me what you think of my photos. I'm always looking for brutal honesty so I can improve my work.

    I didn't capture overall pics of the murals. I just did a brief walk through, but I plan to go back so I'll shoot a few more images of the murals. History and old buildings fascinate me. 100+ year old church is young compared to the churches and castles in Europe, but it's interesting to touch and imagine places when they were first constructed.

    I noticed that the church hosts communion every Wednesday at noon - I might stop in if I can break away from my other commitments.

    Here are several other pics I took (nothing special).

    I really like those compositions, Steve, especially the 2nd one.

    I look forward to seeing more photos from your trip.

    Here's what the murals look like. There are two sides to the story - this is one of the two breezeways.

    Fantastic images, Steve! I really like the way you exposed, framed and cropped(?) the silhouette of the cross in the third image.

    Colorado is kind of like neighbors to Arizona... You should make a quick stop here during your trip! I'd be more than happy to meet you up north if you wanted!

    I might try to pull something like that off if I had a car! I am on foot in Denver so my range is limited.
