I recently posted this image on "Soaring Through the World in Pictures" and it generated a discussion about the doors so I thought I would re post post on my blog.
This is one of those posts where I learned something in the process. I mentioned that I wondered if there is any significance to the red doors. My guess was that it is because it was a Methodist Church...all of the Methodist Churches in this area have red doors. There were so many great comments about why they may be red...ranging from representing the Blood of Christ to His Passion to even the fact that the mortgage of the church had been paid in full! I am going to steal a link that Dawn Treader thoughtfully posted about this issue: http://ameganfindsartinphilly.wordpress.com/2008/03/26/why-many-church-doors-are-red/
Thanks Dawn Treader, I found it very interesting.
For some reason this was a difficult photo for me. I have taken several pictures of this church over the years and have never gotten one I was satisfied with until this one. I always had difficulty getting the exposure correct. The contrast of the white walls with the dark foliage seemed to throw off the camera....either the walls were washed out or the trees too dark.. I experimented with HDR and it gave me the correct exposure...so I can finally put this image to rest!
