MORE MOODS, MEMORIES, AND MANIFESTATIONS
LAMY CHURCH IN EARTH TONES, November 2008
Manifestations of this church keep coming into my visual awareness. I am working on creating an image of this little church that somehow conveys something other than a record shot of a building. This church has a history, and within the greater history are many forgotten stories. I am sure that there were weddings, funerals, christenings, confessions, baptisms, sermons, songs and prayers in this now seemingly abandoned house of God. Most of the memories of those events are now gone. Perhaps a few people are still around that can relate some of the stories, but by-and-large, the recollections of the happenings of the parishioners of the Lamy Church are all lost in time.
The last time I photographed the church there was some evidence that someone was attempting to maintain the building. I hope that they succeed.
