A few times during the year, I and a few friends will visit the zoo, then after dark, we venture downtown to find some building or scene that we think might make an interesting image. On this trip, I was driving and went down a road I didn’t mean to, but it took us right by South Main Baptist Church. I knew that there was a church by that name in Houston, but had never driven by it before, since it’s in a part of town I’m seldom in. We did a 180 and found a parking spot, then spent the next half hour walking around trying not to get in each other’s shot. The grounds were pretty and well manicured, with a large fountain all lit up, just for us.
