Sepia scenes ~ steeple

This is one of many century-old churches in a former mill town in southern Connecticut.

This church is beautiful inside, as are all of them built by the immigrants who lived here and toiled in the factories of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

I took this picture from the next street over. Interesting criss-cross of wires, eh? I thought so.

See many more sepia photos at Mary T's Sepia Scenes blog.

I'm sure you are being tongue-in-cheek aren't you Patti? I find wires to be a total bummer, wrecking many an otherwise good picture. I love the church steeple. It is so East Coast.

Many of the churches built in the 18th and 19th centuries really are beautiful inside and out, aren't they? They have so much character.

Hehehe about the wires, Patti. I cannot count the number of times I've wished wires weren't in the way. It's OK here though as I can see the steeple through them. :)

Great shot, and the wires show that this is modern time :)))

A slim, classic church very much like the one we have in our time, also built at the same time.
I like the way the wires frame the the church.
I also like your way of using the sepia, from copper to almost cream.
Good.

A very interesting steeple, varied and distinctive, Patti! Happy Sepia Scenes! :)

My question is - can you get inside to take some pictures?!? I see so many lovely old churches that I'd love to take pictures of inside but alas, I can never get into them to do so!
