..back to government street.. here’s a church named ‘the bee hive’..
The congregation of Government Street United Methodist Church, Methodism’s Mother Church in Mobile, began in 1826 on Franklin Street. Called “The Bee Hive” because of it’s activity, it sent “swarms” throughout the city to form new congregations. A brick structure replaced the original wooden church in 1848-49. The move to this corner was accomplished with the dedication of a Gothic structure in 1890. The remodeling to Spanish Colonial architecture was begun in 1906 and completed in 1917. Architect was Mobilian George B. Rogers, and Harry E. Goodhue of Boston created the stained glass windows.

I like this sharp up angled shot which shows the intricate and beautiful designs in this facade. I like seeing such artist work which today seems absent from most new constructions. Nice shot.
great b/w … the tones are excellent and the sky look awesome…good perspective too
Interesting anlge and decision to do as BW. Looks like a great blue sky.
I love this angle and the postwork in B&W
I really like the angle of this. Very cool b&w tones as well.
Nice angle, nice B and W, you could even make me like this heavy and complicated architecturel style !
The architecture comes alive with this perspective, and the choice of mono. A superb observation
gorgeous, and i loved the story too… the shot is so sharp and shows the detail of the church amazingly well… love it!
i like the compo, and that little part of sky that seems to melt with the building.
Such a beautiful facade of a building. Great toning
Nice composition..and angle..Bravo!
Any church would be proud of that name, Rian, if it were worth it’s weight in gold. It speaks well for its mission!
Great architectural shot, really like the angle you took this, awesome details. Works great in B&W. Nice.
Beautiful angular shot to the top of the building!
Really like the low angle, light, and ornate details you’ve captured.
Great contrast between the door and the light facade.
Beautiful architecture! Great tonal range on the B&W.
Wow this is overwhelming!! What a superb perspective! And I love that grain in the sky. Really like this alot Rian! 🙂
Love the perspective, beautiful shot!
