InSPIREd Sunday – The Church of Saint Mary

Church of Saint Mary
(I love that  big massive cross. Didn’t use to but it has grown on me. My various lomography cameras throw the guys at Walgreens off sometimes. I don’t know why these images are reversed.)

The Church of Saint Mary is a Catholic Church located just off Peoria in the Brookside area of Tulsa. It is close to the rec center where son has done his improv comedy workshops the last couple years or so. So I have scoured the park, the church grounds, and the surrounding neighborhood with my camera while he is in his class.

(I can’t wait for Spring when everything will be lush and green.)

The grounds of the church and associated school are quite extensive and well landscaped and has a lot of interesting things to see and photograph.


Of course my favorites are the statue of Saint Mary and the bas relief carved into the bricks of one of the the walls. I also like the massive concrete cross at the front of the church.

(Double exposure, fisheye. I’ve posted this before.)

Plus the school has a very colorful playground.

I’ve never got tired photographing it. I’ll probably be doing it for a couple more years.

Do you have an area that you return to many times to photograph?

    for me it is Blue Ridge Parkway & mountains. they just look amazing in all season. ( :

    i love thinking about spring. all the pretty flowers & beautiful days to open our windows. i enjoy each season for so many reasons. but my favs are autumn/fall & spring.

    photo question – how are you making those shots look like they are taking from a telescope? that is wild!! but enjoy it too!

    For me it’s Pikes Peak. Although we have lived here almost 16 years, the mountain amazes me every day. There’s hardly a day goes by that I don’t think about pulling over to the side of the road to photograph the mountain. I love it and will never get tired of it!

    I do have a couple of places that I visit often, always looking for something new to photograph. I’ve even used the areas as the background for portraits. Oh, I have a new lens coming in the next couple of days. I can’t wait to try it out. Very nice work Yogi. I really like the sculpture and the bas relief combo. Very well done.

    I sure like your photo fun. Returning to an area gives me the opportunity to see it with different eyes, under different conditions.

    You obviously have wonderful walks with Logan – how good for both of you to have “man time” together. I am unable to walk very far nowadays but thoroughly enjoyed a ride through woods in a hired mobility scooter when daughter was home at the end of September. Brilliant feeling of freedom:-)
