Late Afternoon Blue


In Northern Virginia, we get more blue skies in fall and winter than we do in spring and summer, when it’s often overcast. On this day, the late afternoon sky was so beautifully blue that I knew the red brick of Shiloh Baptist Church would be the best way to set it off.

    Sally, this church is very eye-catching, not only for its attractive architecture but for that very red red color they paint it. I love it.

    Olivier, merci mon cher. Thanks for the birthday wishes! I went to dinner with a friend and treated myself to baklava later. Mmmm!!

    Alice, bon dimanche a toi aussi!

    Matthieu, it’s one of my favorite buildings in town.

    Kate, it has a great bell tower, too, which you can see better in the other photo I linked to. Thanks for the birthday greetings. I did have a very nice birthday.

    The colours here are sumptuous Marie, and the Church has an autumnal colour all of it’s own.
