“the church rummage sale” – A Haiku and Advertisement

serendipitous
alchemy, old dreams to gold;
the church rummage sale

So, if you happen to be in St. Louis this Friday night and Saturday, my church, Grace and Peace Fellowship, is hosting a rummage sale to raise funds for a winter shelter which provides a warm and welcoming place for some women during the cold months. It is certainly a worthy cause, and I believe that often there are some pretty fantastic items to be found!

Sad Like a Ruined Church – Glorious Ruin – Fourth Baptist Demolition – Old North St. Louis

Here are two panoramas I took recently, the first of which is technically more sound. In the second, I forgot to use the same exposure for each of the shots and so, despite some attempts at remedy, I got this pieced together, reconstructed look, which along with the lomography effect that I employed, actually looks rather interesting and contributes to the theme of the image, I feel. I did want to acknowledge, though, that it was a happy accident, derived from a sad, sad scene.
