One of the many treasures of DeKalb is St. Marys Catholic Church. Back on May 9th, I posted on St Mary’s at 4th and Pine in DeKalb. At the time I remarked I really wanted to return to photograph the inside.
Thanks to Father Anderson I was able to do that. Coincidentally, the day I arrived for the shoot was Father Anderson’s last day at the parish. Talk about timing.
When you look at the windows from a distance you don’t really absorb the intense color and detail they have to offer. To that end, each of the shots I took were photographed specifically to draw out the beauty that would likely be overlooked or under appreciated in the more casual view. And since a Blog Post isn’t the best place to showcase photographs, please click on this link or the image below to view the complete gallery of St Mary’s in large scale. I hope you enjoy.
And, by the way, the church does offer a book; Stained Glass Treasures It’s available at the parish office.
