I just like it Lannie, it has a kind of rythm in it.... --Els

Thank you, Els. I never thought about it as rhythm, but the rhythm of life and death is here, in this very slow return of this very old building to the soil so that something else can grow here, or be built here. (This old church building dates from the very earliest years of northern European settlement of North America, sometime in the 1600s.) Life goes on, both in this world and, I believe, the next. There is a rhythm in all that, but I think that it is a rhythm that culminates in the final climactic triumph of good over evil, of life over death, for all time. Such is my hope and my belief. --Lannie

Church, St. Helena Island, SC (B&W) Not sure which category to file this one under. . . . This was shot in the virtual darkness of the spring of 2002 (using a tripod, of course). I don't remember the exposure data, but it was nothing out of the ordinary. This was the best low-light shot I ever got from the E-20, which is frankly not a good low-light camera. Modern digital is so much easier in that regard, but this was made six years ago when shooting digital was still a challenge. It isn't half bad on "Larger."
