this or that thursday: grace episcopal church

St. Francisville is a beautiful small town north of Baton Rouge with many interesting, historic homes and buildings. My favorite is Grace Episcopal Church. The grounds and cemetery are nestled amongst many moss-covered live oaks. Last weekend, we enjoyed walking around for a bit and I, of course, enjoyed taking some photos.

This first one was with my iphone. You can't beat it for a wide view.



The rest were taken with my dslr.

  4. Those trees are so amazing! We don't have mossy trees like that up here, probably not humid enough!

  7. Deb,
    I was so surprised to open your blog and see pictures of Grace Church.
    I also live in Baton Rouge and have been to Grace Church several times and have
    captured several beautiful images there. After work I will be exploring your
    website to see where you have been : ).

    1. I really do love it. You can't beat it for macros. It's nice for portraits too as long as your subject is relatively still. It's slow to focus.
