The Church by Alice's Grave

The historic sign


The iron gate to the church and to the grave yard


They offer also healing services ,
and I thought only Benny Hinn is doing that :-)



The pretty little porch in front of the entrance to the small chapel


View trough the window into the chapel,
and a self portrait of the photographer too :-)



A nice decoration on a kid grave stone


And last but not least: where death is, there is also life!
An other photographer was doing in the same time some wedding pictures
in the grave yard, close by Alice's grave.

(About Alice's grave, see my post from yesterday!)

All Saints is a beautiful historic church! My mothers family - Salzburgers from Austria, came to Georgia in the early 1730's and founded the oldest church still in use in Georgia, Ebenezer Lutheran. I actually wrote a paper for college on the Salzburgers coming to Georgia, and it is on my blog as well. I lover old churches! My father's church (Cathedral of St. Michael Charismatic Episcopal Church) was built in the late 1800's as the Methodist Church in Thomaston, GA. It is neat to see how the religious architecture evolved over a period of about 150 years! Again, Wonderful pictures!

The view through the window describes three scenes.
The self portrait of the artist, the inside of the church and the sky, tree's and gate on the outside. If I thought about this long enough, I could come up with something that probably has no meaning at all.
The print is just interesting to look at and try and fill in the gaps. The bridal shot almost looks like the ghost of a wedding past. Nice shot. The shells and spanish moss on the head stone has an old feeling or like these objects are making there way from the sea and covering this head stone of a child, maybe as some protective force.

That was very good information on the All Saints Church. The shells on the gravestone was very touching and pretty.

Benny Hinn? I heard that name before. I have friend who live in London and I think they described him as a "nutter". :o)


Have a nice weekend, Susanne.

I love the thought of seashells on a childs grave. lovely images Sue. Through the window i can see waht I (a Brit) would call a typically American room. Lovely...
