Two Sisters ~ Have Cameras, Will Travel
We are two sisters who share a love of photography. We dream of traveling together to numerous locations where we can photograph to our hearts' content. We live in different states, but the distance vanishes when we talk about photography and share with each other what we digitally capture.

Week 3: Chestnut ~ Delores




For this week's Project 64: Out of the Box I "dusted" off a photo I took in October. When I was visiting family, my sister and I went to First United Methodist Church in Corinth, Mississippi while looking for photographs depicting architectural "letters." The hardware for the door handles on one of the doors of Fillmore Street Chapel look like the Letter "H." My sister has seen names spelled with architectural alphabets. {Forgive me if this is not the correct terminology for this style.}


Wanting to document the building itself, I stepped back to get a more broader view of the entrance. As you can tell from the aged brick in the photograph near the top, this building has a rich history. The sign out front says "Corinth's oldest church bldg: erected 1871 by Cumberland Presbyterian Church, the first church est. in Corinth.  1906-1976 served as Fillmore St. Pres. Ch. Now used as chapel by First United Methodist Church." The interior has been remodeled and this chapel is greatly sought after for weddings.
