A Revelation at Seven Dolors Church

For the twelve years that we have lived behind Seven Dolors, I’ve been trying to get the perfect picture of this historic church. Last evening, I waited until the sun was low and then I ran out and got in position with my camera. And after all these years, I finally had a revelation … well make that two: (1) I needed to stop trying to get a picture of the church because the pictures in which I tried to fit in as much as possible were all boring and (2)  I needed to stop trying to get the perfect picture because I should consider any picture that says what I want it to say as a perfect picture. So I tried to photograph those features that draw my eye to Seven Dolors over and over. I tried to capture a bit of what is beautiful and moving about this church. Here are a few of my results from last night. Something tells me that I’ll be photographing Seven Dolors for years to come.

  1. Less is more with these shots! By just picking out details you have left me intrigued as to the look of the overall building, like the back cover of a novel giving just enough to make you want to read the whole book. I hope you’ll publish more images of what is evidently a beautiful building.

  2. I remember coming out the back door of the library late one evening and looking over to the church with the light pouring through the stained glass windows, it was one of the most beautiful sights. Thanks for the photos. Linda
