A Distant Storm
A Distant Storm .... rolls in over Lake Nicaragua as another day, starts the fade into night.
Music To Your Ears
The huge and beautiful Pipes of the organ inside the Metropolitan Cathedral of the Assumption of Mary of Mexico City. I did not hear them played, but from the size I can only imagine the heavenly sounds.
The Twin Bell Towers of the Metropolitan Cathedral.
Horse Carts of Granada 2
The brightly colored horse carts are a standard here in Granada, Nicaragua. A means of making a living for the locals and a pleasant way to see the town for locals and tourist alike. The Cathedral of Granada makes a perfect backdrop to this image.
The end to a beautiful day. As the sun sets, it is a spectacular view looking west to Xalteva Church seen way in the distance. Taken from the Bell Tower of Iglesia de La Merced, I can not not help but think on the history this church has seen. But oh what a place to watch the sunset...
Cathedral from the Tower 2
This view of the grand Cathedral of Granada is seen from high a top the bell tower of Iglesia de La Merced. Looking east, one can see Lake Nicaragua far off in the distance. Two great churches in our small city.

Cathedral at Blue Hour
Blue Hour is a special time of night just after sunset when the sky starts to darken and the lights of the city come alive.
Back doors leading to a rear courtyard and patio area.. In the day, I can see the yards and patios filled with worshippers.
Beautiful ceilings in the main chapel.
Church of Many Colors
The altar in the Main Cathedral of Maria Auxiliadora
The reflecting pool of the baptismal gives a soothing feeling and thought of a new beginning.
Darkness and Light
The main Cathedral is simply phenomenal no matter in color or black & white.
Grandeur and Glory
The main Cathedral of Christ Church in Nashville, Tennessee is known for its beauty and detail to quality. This church has so many layers to it from stone to wood to metal to stained glass. Simply phenomenal.
The beautiful area set aside for baptisms is a contrast of colors and textures. From the magnificent wood ceilings and floors to the rich green color of the walls and the stained glass of the windows. What a Fantastic Cathedral.
The Bell of LaMerced
I took this shot of the Bell Tower and tried to give it a dramatic artistic feeling. This old church has withstood wars, earthquakes & razing by pirates. One of Granada's Gems.
Horse Carts of Granada
Rays of Hope
This is a shot I got of Woodmont Christian Church on Hillsboro Pike in Green Hills. It is a shot taken with an 8mm Fisheye. It is kind of designed to be a dark Gloom and Doom shot but with a bright Ray of Hope emanating from the back of the Steeple and Church.
An aging niche in the side of this History filled Church. Hard to imagine what has filled this space over its many years.
Intricate design in Gold & Black on the Baptismal in a small side Chapel at the Cathedral of Mexico City
Basilica de Guadalupe
This is the modernistic Main Chapel in the new Basilica de Guadalupe in Mexico City, Mexico. From the contemporary lighting above to the beautiful woods to the very large pipe organ....This was indeed a place of modern wonder.
The splendor of towering columns in the main chapel of the old Basillica de Guadalupe in Mexico City, Mexico
Intricate Wooden Door
Intricate Carvings on a Wooden Door that is a side access to the Metropolitan Cathedral of the Assumption of Mary of Mexico City.
