I am a travel photographer and came up with a unique way to photograph churches a few years ago.


Show Full Text

Most people photograph a panorama from side to side but when I shoot churches I do it as a vertical panorama. Since I started, I have probably shot over 300 churches all over the world. This group is only churches in Paris, France.

Amazing! I can't stop scrolling up and down to see it. And more chairs! These chairs fit closely together and almost resemble pews. Love the architecture, it's breathtaking. Every church will want you to come and photograph it like this now, for their pamphlets and advertisements. :-)

Beautiful. What is that black square in the middle of the floor though?

AHA!!! PEWS!!!!! This must be a catholic church. The pews are the stand-kneel-sit variety aren't they?

WOW! Very different! And ok, why are some of these chairs corralled in? If you cannot tell it by now, I do not go to church. I never have, and never will, except for the times when necessary, like funerals.

I see what they did there. They couldn't find wood long enough to make pews, so they got 1x4's and nailed the chairs together to make pews.

Ohhkayyy, I am completely flummoxed now. Those boxes? Just randomly placed in the middle of the floor, with books in them. WTH?

The perfectly fitted "bricks" in the arches of the roof are incredible!
