Title Country Churches
Category Gold Color
Location Woodville, TX
Reason For Making the Image The juxtaposition of the hymnals and nearby highway created an obvious and complementary contextual link. At the same time, the urgency of the passing automobile was a sharp contrast to the simplicity and stillness of the little church. This was emphasized by the car’s vivid color and subdued tones of the church’s interior.
Camera Canon 60D
