Remember last Thursday when I posted 12 Gates? I am thinking of focusing the Thursday blogs on photography of Charleston. And a dozen of something is always better...right? Anyone who can suggest a cool name for the Thursday blog series gets a special prize. Charleston Twelve? 12 Takes on Charleston? A dozen dittys on the Holy City?.......chime in at any moment...
This week I have a dozen churches to share. Charleston's nickname 'The Holy City' came about because of our skyline, which is dominated by Church Steeples. We don't have many tall buildings in Charleston, therefore the steeples really stand out.
So here we go. 12 Churches of Charleston......
Some of our churches are very ornate.
Others are rather modest.
Some churches are a nice place for a white wedding.
Others are pretty in pink.
Some churches soar high.
Others soar really, really high.
Some churches terminate a street.
Others take over the street.
Some churches are inspired by the Greeks.
Others are inspired by the Romans.
Some churches are very subtle in their message.
Others not so much.
If this exercise has taught me one thing, it's that these houses of the holy come in all shapes and sizes. Did I forget your favorite church? Well let me know about it. It will make the next one....12 More Churches?
