Sunday Selections #28

It's Sunday Selections time again!
Time to post photos that have been hiding away in your computer files, photos that you may have completely forgotten about.
Have a hunt through and find them.

This idea comes to us from Kim, at frogpondsrock, who relised one day that she takes many more photos than she uses, as we all do, and wanted to post some of the older ones on her blog.

A once a week meme seemed like a good idea, so Sunday Selections was born and anyone at all can join in.

I often choose a theme for my Sunday Selections and this week my theme is:

CHURCHES



 These first three are at Norwood, and the rest are in the city.
                                               



 just a couple of our many churches.
 I'd planned on taking the bus to several suburbs over several weekends and getting many more photos, but that will have to wait until the warmer weather.

This is our statue of the newly-sainted Mary McKillop.

To join in with Sunday Selections, post photos of your choice under the Sunday Selections title, then go to Kim's site, add your name to her linky list, then leave her a comment.
Then take a look at what others have posted for their selections.
There are some really good photographers out there.

  1. McKillop sounds Irish. I have Killops on my dads side. Is this an Irish saint?

  2. I'm not a church going person but I do love the architecture :)

    Mary MacKillop was of Scottish parents :)

  3. Love them. Beautiful and old. Is it just me or are modern churches (and buildings more generally) a LOT less attractive.

  4. Love churches, but more from the achitechtural perspective. Are the later pictures built with sandstone?

    I read a lovely fictionalized recount of Mary MacKillop's lide called The Black Dress. It's written for young adults, but still a great read and a nice starting point for thos who might not know much about her (as I didn't)

  6. Delores; I'm not sure of her history, only know that she was a nun who established schools for poor girls and made sure they got the educations they needed, as well as other good works.

    Jayne; I love church architecture too, especially the older ones and those big, fancy cathedrals.

    EC; I agree with you. Modern churches and buildings in general are not as easy on the eyes as the older ones.

    amanda; I think they're sandstone and bluestone. I've heard of that book and meant to read it, then forgot about it. I'll add it to my to-be-read list.

    Windsmoke; agreed.

  7. Adelaide lives up to it's name as the 'City of Churches' I guess. Very nice.

  9. Hi River,

    Some great churches there. I have a few churches scattered around somewhere - I mean pictures of churches of course, not churches.

    :0)

    Cheers
