Although I am an old abandoned church
with broken pews and empty aisles;
There once was a sweet, sweet Spirit in this place, the Spirit of the Lord;
There were sweet expressions on each face,
I know they felt the presence of the Lord.*

Photographer’s Statement: There is something that tugs my heart’s string when I come across an abandoned old church. It is as if that although the congregation had left, the Spirit still remains. It is as if the rafters still sing the Creator’s praise.
Process: Structured, “bleached,” and color-toned. They make excellent canvas prints.
