I went up to the Jemez Mountains yesterday. This is an old church that is up there and it’s beautifully old
I must pass this church a few times a week. Everytime I do I think that it’s a pretty church and that I should take a photo of it. The reason I haven’t is that I can’t find the name of the church. So today I decided to take the photo anyway and if anyone local recognizes this church please let me know the name so I can update this post.Â Thanks
I am not a particularly religious person but there was something about this church that was very appealing. Maybe the colors or the architecture. Any ideas?
As the weather is less than pleasant today I dipped into my archives for this photo because I didn’t want to go out in the cold and snow! I took it back in October of 2006. I thought this was a kewl looking church!Â It is located on 3rd and Lead in downtown Albuquerque!
I am not even sure what church this is but I thought the steeple looked pretty against the dusty purple sunset sky!
For some reason this church steeple captivated me. It is the steeple of the Immaculate Conception Parish in downtown Albuquerque. It is a Catholic church and I have never seen a Catholic church with stars and moons on the steeple.
To see a close up please go to Albuquerque Extra!
I really found the doors surrounded by the stain glass windows very inviting!
This is the church steeple on the Immanuel Presbyterian Church. This was one of my night photography attempts! I am pretty pleased with the results!
Founded in 1706, San Felipe de Neri parish was originally named San Francisco Xavier de Albuquerque. When the church was on Romero Street it was forced to move because of a flood. It was rebuilt in 1793 in Old Town’s Plaza and given its present name.
This old church is along the Corrales Road Scenic Byway. Corrales is a small town about 10 minutes or so from Albuquerque.
