Thematic Photographic: Faith



I believe in God but do not attend church. I am fascinated by them and their architecture. Along Barton Street, in Hamilton, Ontario, in the span of a couple of blocks, there is several churches. I was walking to the doctors one day and snapped pics of them all. This is the Roman Catholic church, and probably the religion I most connect with... mainly for tax and school purposes though. Anyway, I agree we all need to have faith and believe in something. What would life be without faith?? Predictable and boring.

I love architecture as well!. Churches have such detail... European architecture has more detail and also tells more of a story than American (it seems) architecture.

Interesting church, with one tower considerably bigger and higher than the other. I suppose it was for the bells?

I love churches too - these bricks have a lovely warm colour.

Beautiful old building!

Nice building, but isn't it annoying for photography when the area has so many overhead wires in the way?

I'm as far from a Roman Catholic as one can ever get, but wow do I dig their architecture. It's hard to stand in front of a building like this and not feel moved in some way.

Scenes like this remind me why I love Hamilton so much. I need to spend more time there walking around and just drinking it in.
