The story behind this shot is pretty simple...I wouldn't have even gotten a single picture of this church if it weren't for a canceled flight back to New York. As my Mom was dropping me at the airport I got a call from the airlines telling me that my flight was delayed and that there was no way I would make my connection all the way back to NY so I had to wait until the AM to get another flight back home.
As it happened my Mom and I both had all our camera gear with us since we had just toured the Space Center taking photos and this church was on her list to photograph while we were down there. After I got off the phone with the airline we leaisurly drove back accross town and caught this church just as the sun was getting low so it worked out pretty well in our favor!
The peeling paint on the facade of the church is very interesting...it almost gives the look of a mosaic.
