Skywatch Friday - Church Steeples

Taken at St. Paul's Church on 29th and Church Streets in San Francisco.
This is where my Mom attended school and also where the film Sister Act
with Whoopie Goldberg was filmed.

I love the first shot - but then I love taking photos more or less straight up, like that! And the second one, with the steeple blocking the sun!!! It's a beautiful church, and you must have had a ball, photographing it!

I like the angle of the spires in the first one and the silhouette is great. Thanks for sharing:)

Judy, U had a fantastic time taking all those photos, I nearly drained the battery with all the shots I took :) Thanks

Jane, and Violet Sky, I love taking shots at weird angles, thanks for commenting.

Karen, That one is my favorite. There is just something so mystical about it. THank you.

I was there again today, Jo...stopped by Cafe Noetica after getting my Japanese encephalitis and rabies vaccine ( felt I needed a reward ). Alex asked where you were! I told him it wasn't the same being in that neighborhood without you but I was making a sacrifice since it was on my way home.

Very unusual shots, Jo, with some great architectural detail. And a brilliant blue cloudless sky is not very common either.

Gorgeous shots of these steeples! I like all of them, Jo.

Beautiful shots, but the second one is "just right" with the sun behind the steeple. Mickie ;)
