Today’s Photography 101 assignment is architecture. That’s not an easy assignment when you live in the middle of nowhere.

“Train your eye to look for architectural elements that translate in black and white: sharp lines and patterns, defined shapes, large surface areas, and a mix of very light and very dark colors.”


This is Saint John the Baptist Catholic Church in River Bourgeois, Nova Scotia (Canada). It’s the church my parents were married in.

    • Thanks. There are lots of churches around here, but I took a bit of a drive to shoot this one. That wasn’t just because is this one is pretty. It’s really isolated. I knew there wouldn’t be traffic or other things in my way.

  1. Good job. All of your lines lead the eye to the small cross cleanly shown against the sky making it the most important element in the photo. Your lighting is excellent, the detail in the clapboards, the worn paint in the circular window frame below the steeple shows good balance as well. And just a few clouds in the periphery of your sky adds interest as well no blank canvas here, detail again forcing the eye back to the cross. Well done. You and your camera are working well together.
