Mount Vernon Place United Methodist Church
The other morning Sheila informed me that her, Lisa, and Rachael were going to an arts festival in Baltimore called Artscape, and on the spur of the moment asked if I wanted to go. For those of you who don’t know, Artscape is the biggest free arts festival in the United States, and is held in Baltimore every summer. I thought about it for a moment, and decided that I would go. When we got to Baltimore, the conversation in the car quickly turned to the subject of the architecture of the city. Slick clean high rises mixed with old and beautiful buildings. The church in the photo above falls into the latter. It is victorian gothic to be exact and was built in 1872. The church is located in the Mount Vernon section of the city, which has a roundabout in the middle. You can see this beautiful church from blocks away and as you approach the roundabout where the church is located, it’s towering size just impresses you. Lisa let me out of the car to get a shot of this church as parking is a bit of an issue in this area, and I grabbed what shots I could, and hopped back into the car so we could get to our destination. On a side note, I cut this shot off at just above the door for a reason: there is a bus stop right in front of the church and I did not want the people waiting for the bus in my shot.
