Happy new year folks! Ray, nice image of the cactus. But cactus in Ohio? Doesn't seem to go with the temperature there And no celebration pics here either, too cold and windy to step out into the new year
Here's a couple more of Baltimore churches instead. (BTW Georg, I did remember the one of the church with the whirling snow from last year, thanks for posting that one again). For both of the churches below I think these were the best possible angles with the 28 3.5 PC in trying to get the entire church while at the same time minimizing the "urban furniture", I think the first one the lens was shifted diagonally up. One can only back up so far before a wall gets in the way in these settings
The Holy Rosary Church in Fells Point, right near the pier where Polish immigrants started arriving in the mid-late 19th century. This link has the history as well as a much older picture of the church without the "urban furniture".
Here's the modern day photo with the 28 3.5 PC.

Next is a German Catholic church that is apparently shuttered for the last couple years in the Washington Hill area, not far from the one above. This one has an even older history, the first construction may have begun about 1850s, supporting German immigrants that arrived in the mid 19th century. Here's a link about the historic significance of the church:
And today's pic of the church using the 28 3.5 PC.
