Frame Within in a Frame Attempt #2

I always try to get at least two good photos that I can submit to our photography club’s monthly challenge. This weekend was my last chance to make that happen. While I did spend a long time walking around downtown, I didn’t really get as many shots as I wanted. Hopefully these will be quality over quantity.

Churches: Harmonia Baptist Church

Here’s a church Shelby and I found on Saturday. It was lovely on the outside.

 
 

However pretty on the outside, but I don’t like the inside.

I can’t think of anything that displays the love of Jesus less than a gate with a warning sign that reads: “TRESPASSERS WILL BE PROSECUTED”

I’d rather go to a church that says: “Trespassers Welcome!”

Sugarcane Festival at Durst-Taylor Museum

Shelby and I took our grandparents downtown this weekend to the annual Sugarcane Festival at the Durst-Taylor Museum.

I got a few good shots with the Lumix GH4 that I’m using right now, but I’m growing more and more unhappy with it. A coworker was there taking photos with his now-dated Canon 60D and the colors were just…better.

Trey was doing another blacksmithing demonstration and our local news station, KTRE, even did a feature on him. We also got to watch them boil a batch of cane syrup. It smelled pretty good, but boy was it hot.

Blacksmithing at Durst-Taylor Museum

A few photos of my friend Trey practicing blacksmithing at the Durst-Taylor Museum during their Lost Arts and Forgotten Skills Fair. A girl named Alexis was very interested in learning so Trey spent a lot of the time showing her around the forge. He’s a very patient teacher. I’ve attached some notes from him on the photos below.
