Sunset, Peru, Massachusetts

I had wanted to photograph this church located in the small town of Peru,Massachusetts for several years. The problem had always been a matter of light, and the fact that I didn’t get by there very often. This day, however, my companion and I had left Shelburne Falls, earlier than usual which put us in Peru at just the right time.

I worked for a bit trying to photograph the building without including the wires, but it just wasn’t possible, and in the end decided that they were part of the true image and could be included without ruining it.

  1. Wonderful image Steven 😀 You did indeed capture the light beautifully. In this case I think the wires add to the image unlike most times when they distract. Oh the things we go through to take a perfect image. Awesome work.

  2. I know what you mean about those ubiquitous wires. It happens to me all the time when I go out to take pictures of buildings in downtown Panama City, Panama. Those horrible wires are everywhere.

    In your case, the building was well captured and the wires made little distractions if any.

    1. I did, in fact, give consideration to removing the wires in post; a tedious but not impossible task, but the more I looked at the image the more I came to believe it would actually be weaker without them. Just my opinion of course.
