Black and White Project

Trinity Church



I am starting a new project of Black and White images and here are two of them.  The first one, Johnsville, is a new image shot recently in Johnsville, California.  Johnsville is a tiny little town up in the Sierra Nevada mountains, about 45 miles north of Truckee, CA and about 50 miles due west of Reno, Nevada.  Besides being a somewhat abandonded lumber town it has one of the best restaurants in the area; a favorite of ours called The Iron Door.  The town has some very photographic old buildings, if you're into that sort of photography.  In this photograph, the small building on the left is the old firestation and houses a horse-drawn fire truck from the early 1900's.

The second photograph, Trinity Church,  was taken several years ago while my wife and I were visiting her brother and his family in Shepherdstown, West Virginia.  Shepherdstown is a fairly small community located right across the Potomac River from Sharpsburg, Maryland.  It is also home of Shepherd University, a small liberal arts college. We really enjoyed the town and the area, and since I am a big history buff we visited nearby sites, including Harper's Ferry, Antietam battlefield right outside Sharpsburg and even travelled into Pennsylvania to visit Gettysburg.  The Trinity Episcopal Church sits right in the middle of downtown Shepherdstown.
