Sacred Heart Catholic Church

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Queen Street side view of the church. The built in editor for perspective control allowed to 'roll' the upper portion of the image in to lessen the sense the image is leaning away from you. The lens is a Tokina so it shoots a little on the yellow side. The building is stark white and shot with the sun near vertical. And, it was a blazing hot Texas summer day so the photons were especially active.

Thank you BMGrace & Henry. It's always fun to photograph the church but I can't quiet get what I want. Henry...we need to make an appointment to get inside early or late in the day to capture the stained glass work and shoot the interior.

I've been inside once years ago for a funeral, don't remember much on how it loks. Sounds good to me.

Thanks Dave. It's a beautiful building constructed by one of Texas most famous architects, Nicolas Clayton. The west side has a cozy little garden. It is all well-maintained and has a very active congregation. Jack
