Teeny Tiny Window Views

Teeny Tiny Windows of a Teeny Tiny Church
(click to enlarge to see detail on darker window)
Last week as Hubs and I were ending a day of sightseeing off the beaten path we drove back to the interstate to head back home. We pulled off at the first rest stop and sitting just across the way was this little tiny church. The path from the rest stop back to the interstate had us passing it on the way to the entrance ramp. Hubs stopped so I could take a couple of pictures.
There was no sign and no explanation of why it was there. Perhaps just a calming respite for travelers on their continued journey. Except for a sky shot as we entered the interstate it was the last photo I took. Looking back, that somehow seems a fitting way to have ended the blissful day.

My husband and I sometimes happen upon little churches in the middle of nowhere too. It really is strange when there are no signs!

Nice photo that seems to come out of Laura Ingalls' novels.

I love little churches like this that are obviously dedicated to worshiping God.

Thank you for capturing it to share with us.

Carletta,

I spent some time browsing through your blog today. The photographs are very beautiful. You have quite a talent that the average person can only wish they had. I don't know how long you have been doing this as a hobby but you should consider framing them and selling them, or do you already do that?

Very nice,
-Bro

You have a talent not only for photography but for SEEING! So many people would have missed this. Thank you for sharing both of your talents.

Beautifully captured!

What a neat little find! I love when we stumble upon a jewel like this! I love the stained glass windows, too. Too bad there wasn't a sign or anything telling you the name of the church so you could look up the history of it.

A perfect place to stop rest and take that shot...

Thank you Carletta for visiting me over at Wiggers World so often.. it realy nice to see your name in my comments... and it is alway my pleasure to stop by here. You have a very busy camera, and a great eye for the shot...

All the very best to you and yours
Tom

That's a cool picture. I love it. And knowing you I bet in a future post we are going to know exactly why that church is there :)

I agree with ilanadavita - Laura Ingalls definitely jumps to my mind when I see this. And I'm always a sucker for stained glass - lovely!

What a nice little white church...so rural and I am sure it has a rich history. Such a nice photo!

Thom said...

Speaking of Lily and Lucy, where have my manners been. How are they doing my friend? :)

VioletSky said...

it doesn't look run down, so somebody nearby must know its story. it is cute: 'a little white church in the wildwood'.

storyteller said...

Delightful find ... wonderful windows. Thanks for sharing ;-)
Hugs and blessings,

how quaint . . .

It sounds like the beginning of a poem. A teeny tiny church with teeny tiny windows.

If you want to wander down my road I’m home.

Raven said...

Lovely spot. I like teeny tiny even though I'm large.

Dianne said...

lovely scene

Rose said...

Oh Mary, I never thought I would say a church was darling, but that one is. I would love to know the how come of this one...

maryt/theteach said...

Carletta, that is an adorable little church. And the windows too! Isn't it great how things to photograph just pop up before our eyes? :)

Josie Ray said...

So quaint. It would be interesting to know how/why one charming stained glass window remains...
