Back in Michigan and I got a phone call from my Uncle Tom about inspiration for a photo of the day. He stopped by, and I grabbed my camera and tripod and headed out with him towards the house he grew up in. My grandmother’s church sits in Detroit, in a neighborhood that isn’t the greatest, and I took to the street with my camera and its 70-200mm lens (not a small piece of photographic equipment in itself) that I snapped onto my tripod to capture a photo as the sun dipped down behind the rood of the church. It’s an image that he had mentioned a few times in the past few years, and one that I am glad that I could grab quickly while I was home. Hopefully someday we can really investigate lighting up the church and capturing an image that doesn’t involve as much silhouette. Until then, we have the silhouette image above, and the HDR image below.
