St. Andrew's Church

This is St. Andrew's Church, one of the most picturesque churches and churchyards
 around. Located  40 miles west of Selma along U.S. Highway 80, it 
is a national historic landmark. Built in 1853 in the Carpenter Gothic Style,
 the design probably came from architect Richard Upjohn's "Rural Architecture."
 The style is similar to St. Luke's Church at Old Cahawba.

I haveen't seen this interpretation of gothic before but we are young in our study of churches--at least those of us who have just started participating in this meme. I'm really enjoying seeing the different styles of church architecture from all over the U.S. You can tell that the hand of a woodworker was involved with this church. Wonder if this is the original paint color?

I would like to see more, too. Yet I love the perspective of this.

I think that "churches" would make a good theme someday.

This is beautiful! I love the angle of the shot, too.
